Abstract

Charging electric vehicles from solar energy provides a sustainable means of transportation. This paper shows the design of solar powered e-bike charging station that provides AC, DC and contactless charging of e-bikes. The DC charger allows direct DC charging of the e-bike from the DC power of the photovoltaic panels (PV) without the need for an external AC charger adapter. In case of the contactless charger, the bike can be charged without the use of any cables providing maximum convenience to the user. Finally, the charging station has an integrated battery that allows for both grid-connected and off-grid operation
