This paper proposes a practical time-phased model to analyze the vulnerability of power systems over a time horizon, in which the scheduled maintenance of network facilities is considered. This model is deemed as an efficient tool that could be used by system operators to assess whether how their systems become vulnerable giving a set of scheduled facility outages. The final model is presented as a single level Mixed-Integer Linear Programming (MILP) problem solvable with commercially available software. Results attained based on the well-known IEEE 24-Bus Reliability Test System (RTS) appreciate the applicability of the model and highlight the necessity of considering the scheduled facility outages in assessing the vulnerability of a power system.
