I would like to know which of two beginnings of a phrase
As explained here.../ As is explained here...
is grammatically correct? I just found a book where "As explained here,..." is used, but this sounds strange to me, am I wrong?

In the case of "As explained here", "explained" is used in role of adjective. It is a common, correct construct. It's the same construct as
"As a young scout, you are entitled to a discount ticket".
The other construct makes it into a complex sentence:
Since you are a young scout, you are entitled to a discount ticket."
Both constructs are correct, but the first one flows more naturally. Just watch out that you make the subjects match:
As a young scout, a llama bit me when I was on a trip at a zoo garden."
No, the llama was not a young scout at that time.
