Contribution to the sizing and optimisation of a hybrid energy system for an electric vehicle charging station.
This thesis focuses on the sizing and optimisation of a hybrid energy system for electric vehicle charging stations. This system is a combination of renewable energy equipments and the power grid connected to stationary batteries. The solutions outlined are primarily based on the development of energy management algorithms. These solutions address the factors associated with energy converter performances, control algorithms, optimisation techniques and their practical implementation to improve the integration of renewable energy sources in the charging station system.
For this type of application, we modelled and analysed the behaviour of each energy conversion chain. We also put forward an algorithm that combines both the MPPT function and DC bus voltage regulation. The simulation tests are run using the Matlab/Simulink software. For the experimental validation, we developed prototypes at the laboratory for the structure of the hybrid energy system studied. This was numerically controlled using a new Texas Instruments development kit. We then tested this system under charge through two operating methods, particularly the charging of stationary lead-acid batteries and the injection of energy into the electrical network. The NC systems used are ensured by DSP microcontrollers.
