Abstract: India is currently the third largest energy consuming country in the world. And it meets a majority of these humongous needs for energy by conventional non-renewable sources of energy. But, progress is being made to apply more renewables in the energy production sector. One such place is the EV market where the government is introducing great incentives to encourage people to buy more eco-friendly means of transportation. Now, the biggest barrier to wide-scale adaptability of EV is the lack of infrastructure. Compared to several petrol pumps for every kilometer of road, electric charging stations are a rare sight. We discuss a system to fix both of these problems by using renewables to power charging stations decreasing the. The system uses photovoltaic solar panels to charge EV batteries and also supply excess energy to the grid during peak sunshine hours thereby covering its cost of installation and maintenance relatively quicker than conventional solar power setups. A sepic converter is used for dc-dc conversion and a line commutated converter is preferred to act as both rectifier and inverter using a bidirectional configurator. This system has been simulated in Simulink and resultant responses have also been shown in the paper.
