  title={Active Bucketized Learning for ACOPF Optimization Proxies},
  author={Michael Klamkin and Mathieu Tanneau and Terrence W.K. Mak and Pascal Van Hentenryck},
This paper considers optimization proxies for Optimal Power Flow (OPF), i.e., machine-learning models that approximate the input/output relationship of OPF. Recent work has fo- cused on showing that such proxies can be of high fidelity. However, their training requires significant data, each in- stance necessitating the (offline) solving of an OPF for a sample of the input distribution. To meet the requirements of market-clearing applications, this paper proposes Active Bucketized Sampling (ABS…
