The need for a clean environment promotes the increase in the number of electric vehicles (EVs) has led to an increase in power demand, which results in the design and development of the charging stations for electric vehicles. Charging stations are the main source of energy for EVs and their locations are critical to the accessibility of EVs in a city. Thus, the demand for plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) charging for public vehicle charging systems is increasing. This paper reports the design of a 50-kW solar photovoltaic (SPV) charging station for plug-in hybrid electric vehicles. The purpose of the proposed system is to create a powerful, intelligent charging station that is powered by solar energy for charging PHEVs at workplaces. The design is targeted to King Hussein Business Park (KHBP), Jordan. The selection and recommendation of PV modules, inverter rating, and battery bank is chosen on the results generated by an online tool PV Syst. The proposed design is targeted to a surface area of 253 m2. The EV charging station using MPPT based controller is designed and simulated in MATLAB Simulink. The system works satisfactorily under the given conditions and can be modified by adding protection and other components to obtain a more realistic result. This study will help in commercializing the renewable energy charging station of electric vehicles and satisfy the charging demand of EV users, most importantly, reduce the energy cost.
