Socio-economical and technological developments have prompted electric power systems to move forward to an era of Smart Grids. This mainstream concept has a strong interdisciplinary nature by using state-of-the-art technologies in the fields of Information and Communication Technology (ICT), power electronics, and control systems. Modeling and simulation are fundamental steps to accomplish possible applications of this complex and integrated scheme. However, most of the existing simulation platforms, either commercial or free and open source packages, hardly adapt to this requirements of Smart Grids. This paper presents an on-going framework which integrates open source software, OpenDSS, to provide different web services for end-users. This application aims to create a robust computation platform to support customers in making decisions. Different network functions can be verified in this assessment context tool. Working as a social network, this program will empower end-users with an interaction interface to make them fully aware of Smart Grid applications.
