Surrogate models are used to reduce the computational effort required to simulate complex systems. The power grid can be considered as such a complex system with a large number of interdependent inputs. With artificial neural networks and deep learning, it is possible to build high-dimensional approximation models. However, a large data set is also required for the training process. This paper presents an approach to sample input data and create a deep learning surrogate model for a low voltage grid. Challenges are discussed and the model is evaluated under different conditions. The results show that the model performs well from a machine learning point of view, but has domain-specific weaknesses.
