The increasing penetration of renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar energy, gives rise to new challenges for the operation and dispatch of power systems [1, 2, 3]. Demand response is an effective ancillary service for power systems [4, 5, 6, 7]. And EV loads can take part in demand response. V2G technology achieves bidirectional power flow between EVs and power systems. Using V2G, the charging EVs can be regarded as not only controllable load, but also distributed energy storage units [8]. FR provided by charging EVs has gained increasing attention [9, 10, 11, 12].
