Reducing the overall cost and improving the reliability are the two primary but often conflicting objectives in power system. Preventive-maintenance schedules thus need to be optimised to trade-off among multiple objectives. An integrated methodology with three functional blocks is proposed in this study. The first block models the stochastic deterioration process of individual component with a continuous-time Markov model, of which transition rates are influenced by different maintenance extents and aging of components. The second block evaluates the reliability of a composite power system, taking into account the configuration and failure dependence of the system. Particularly, this block identifies the minimum cut sets with consideration of protection trip and operational switching. The third block employs the Pareto-based multi-objective evolutionary algorithm to find the optimal solutions in a large search space and provide a holistic view of relationships among conflicting multiple objectives. A novel representation of maintenance activities is introduced in this study specifying both the maintenance timings and extents, and is proven to outperform the authors' previous representation, specifying the maintenance frequencies only. Optimisation of the reliability, maintenance failure costs is carried out on the Roy Billinton Test System (RBTS) demonstrating the potential of this approach in handling complex systems.
