This paper is proposing a solar photovoltaic based floating charging station (FCS) for marine electric vehicles. The floating charging station can be made useful to all electric marine vehicles during their course of voyage without diverting to port for recharging. The marine charging stations act as self-sustained structures entirely relied on renewable energy generation and hybrid storage system technologies. The marine vessel can meet their energy requirement by bidding with the charging stations via proper communication systems. Floating solar power plant stations is an advanced approach of using photovoltaic modules on water infrastructures to conserve the land along with marine application. This proposed floating charging station with a hybrid energy storage system is designed and verified using MATLAB/Simulink model. The performance of FCS is evaluated. The design and analysis of FCS is detailed in this by considering various load conditions and storage charge controller.
