This short-term course is specially designed and framed taking into account the recent trends in green energy integration and the electric vehicle charging infrastructure with inclusion of microgrids, energy management, power converters for renewable energy integration and energy storage systems into the utility grid as well as for the EV charging infrastructure. The key challenges in renewable energy integrations are the power quality issues due to intermittent nature of power generations and supply-demand management considering the uncertainties in generations and loads. Therefore, this course is designed to describe general concepts and application, control strategies and power management in green energy integration and state of art of EV charging solutions. In addition, applications of multi-level converters, MMPT for solar and wind, battery management systems, energy managements, and the power quality issues are also included for deep understanding of the power converters and their applications in renewable energy integration and in EV charging applications. Furthermore, this course has included lab sessions where students and researchers shall be able to enhance their knowledge in real time simulations, OPAL-RT, C2000 Microcontroller, hybrid energy storage systems and etc. The course is applicable for students and researchers with power electronics, power systems and control system area who want to do research in fast growing and emerging renewable energy technology. Also, it will be suitable for engineering professionals from academia, R&D organizations as well as industries.
