Abstract : Recently, Electric Vehicles (EV) have pulled in a great deal of consideration attributable to the utilization of clean energy. However, the challenge is that developing number of EVs implies request in charging is tremendous which will aggregate the power grid load. In this paper, a renewable based DC charging system is introduced which integrates power from sun, wind and battery energy storage system (BESS) to provide an uninterruptible power supply for the load. Variable irradiance and wind speeds are considered for this study. Incremental conductance method with boost converter and hill climb method with buck converter are implemented in solar and wind respectively to maximize the system efficiency. Three phase uncontrolled diode bridge rectifier is used to convert the AC power output of wind to DC power. Surplus amount of power generated is preserved in the battery storage system which is retrieved in the absence of renewable sources. A bidirectional converter is designed to allow the forward and reverse flow of power. A controller is designed using PID to limit the discharge current of the storage system. Modelling and validation of proposed system is done using MATLAB Simulink platform.
