Abstract

The scope of DC microgrids using renewable resources includes electric vehicle charging stations because of the increased conversion efficiencies caused from the reduced power converter stages between the DC source and DC load. Reduction in carbon emission is the common goal between DC microgrid and the electric vehicle DC fast-charging stations. Proper control of DC/DC converters is essential to transfer power between autonomous microgrids in order to exploit maximum available renewable power. An IoT-based real-time data acquisition is proposed to generate the necessary reference voltages for the respective converters for the efficient and smooth transfer of excess solar power. ThingSpeak cloud platform and MATLAB/SIMULINK software are used to design the proposed control mechanism for the energy transfer.
