Title: GridPACK™ : A Framework for Developing Power Grid Simulations on High-Performance Computing Platforms

This paper describes the GridPACK™ framework, which is designed to help power grid engineers develop modeling software capable of running on high performance computers. The framework makes extensive use of software templates to provide high level functionality while at the same time allowing developers the freedom to express whatever models and algorithms they are using. GridPACK™ contains modules for setting up distributed power grid networks, assigning buses and branches with arbitrary behaviors to the network, creating distributed matrices and vectors and using parallel linear and non-linear solvers to solve algebraic equations. It also provides mappers to create matrices and vectors based on properties of the network and functionality to support IO and to mana
