Abstract : Electric Vehicles are promoted in large numbers by government of India to reduce environmental pollution and climatic change. Major anxieties while introducing Electrical Vehicles is their driving range and initial cost. Enough number of normal, medium and fast charging stations and battery swapping stations are to be planned and installed for smooth conveyance of Electrical Vehicles. This paper deals with a normal charging station implemented at a workplace. A Solar power plant is used as the major source of electrical energy. An alternate connection to the station storage battery is used for importing/exporting the electrical power at times of deficient/excess solar power generation. The performance of the system is verified with MATLAB/Simulink. A section of the system is tested in laboratory prototype using dSPACE control desk.
