One of the bottlenecks that restrict the rapid growth of EVs is the lack of the EV charging facilities [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]. The model of fuel cell charger is established and a corresponding control strategy is proposed in [3]. A new concept of mobile charger and its optimal scheduling methods are presented in [4]. With incremental development in EV charging facilities, EV loads are expected to increase phenomenally in the near future, which will bring negative impacts on the stability of power grids [6]. EV loads are seldom taken into account in current practice of power system planning, which results in risks in system operations and management [7].
