The use of electric vehicles is growing very rapidly, and more and more people are switching to electric vehicles as the problem of air pollution has become a concern in most parts of the world. In addition, the spike in fuel prices around the world has prompted people to opt for an alternative vehicle option other than conventional Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) vehicles. But as the number of electric vehicles increases, the need to install charging stations on a very large scale also increases. The main problem with conventional grid-based charging stations is that they increase the load on the main grid and affect the power quality of the local distribution network. This paper discusses the modeling and simulation of a hybrid electric vehicle charging station operating in multi-mode (i.e., grid-connected or Grid Power Connected Mode (GPCM) and solar-powered or Solar Power Connected Mode (SPCM). The Electric Vehicle (EV) charge controller automatically switches between GPCM and SPCM. With this hybrid electric vehicle charging station model, renewable energy can be integrated with the main grid to improve the efficiency and reliability of the electric vehicle charging station, so the Electric Vehicle Charging Station (EVCS) hybrid model can help to expand the electric vehicle charging network on a large scale. The simulation was performed using MATLAB 2016.
