This paper demonstrates an electric vehicle charging station that benefits from renewable energy sources. Although renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar energy, have been popular due to their environment friendly energy production procedures, they also exhibit some disadvantages. These issues increase the number of studies on hybrid renewable energy systems and distributed electricity generation, which aim to minimize these disadvantages. Thus, the designed station is intended to make use of wind and solar power, while retaining the connection with electrical grid for emergency cases. Various conditions constituting different cases and scenarios are taken into consideration.
