However, optimization of power systems is a complex problem and still hardly possible in real-time, which would be necessary for grid control. In this doctoral project, a methodology is proposed to train artificial neural networks with the results from offline optimizations in order to speed-up calculation and to ensure feasibility of the optimization. That is expected to achieve fast and near-optimal results, but also allows for high modularity, which reduces engineering effort and makes the approach applicable to diverse use cases.}}@COMMENT{Bibtex file generated on }
