A substantial increase in renewable energy in-feed to the primary grid as well as demand growth poses a challenge for transmission system operators (TSOs) to perform maintenance activities while addressing security of supply. A computationally efficient outage scheduling algorithm which is customizable in terms of area and time selection is proposed in this paper. Benders decomposition approach under different demand and wind scenarios, spanning two-stage stochastic programming approach is used. An accurate schedule while fulfilling both maintenance and network constraints is validated on a modified IEEE RTS-24 bus system in GAMS environment. A cost comparison analysis is also performed in this study.
