OpenGridMap is an open source project that crowdsources realistic power grid data to be used for research purposes. In this paper, we propose an approach for the automatic generation of power gird simulation models from crowdsourced data. The proposed approach orders the crowdsourced data into a power circuit relation which is then used to produce a CIM description file and subsequently a power grid simulation model. We provide experiments which demonstrate the effectiveness of the approach on… 
A Crowdsourcing Approach for the Inference of Distribution Grids
The numerical evaluation of the inference algorithm demonstrates that the model inferred based on the acquired official DSO grid dataset achieves a power length accuracy of 88% compared to the ground truth, confirming the approach as a practical method to infer real power distribution grid models.
Predictive mapping of the global power system using open data
Using state-of-the-art algorithms in geospatial data analysis, a first composite map of the global power system with an open license is created, finding that 97% of theglobal population lives within 10 km of a MV line, but with large variations between regions and income levels.

Energy system modeling: Public transparency, scientific reproducibility, and open development
A mid-2017 survey shows that 28 energy system modeling projects have made public their source code, up from six in 2010, and none in 2000; three distinct yet overlapping drivers can explain this shift in paradigm towards open methods.
On the Silent Perturbation of State Estimation in Smart Grid
This article considers persistent adversaries who inject attack vectors “silently,” i.e., they drift the results of the state estimation gradually in multiple steps, with each step bypassing the bad data detection step of state estimation.
Trust in control: a trust model for power system network assessment
A trust model designed for power system network assessment (PSNA) is proposed, and OC-Trust is tailored by categorizing its facets regarding their relevance for PSNA on the one hand and the trust model is extended to realize context-sensitive intersections of trust values.
