Climate change is significantly affected by the increase of greenhouse gases produced by burning fossil fuels. The transportation sector is considered one of the major sources of these emissions. A real need to develop an efficient and clean transport system such as electric vehicles (EVs) can play a significant role to reduce greenhouse emissions. However, EVs have several main concerns that are interrelated to each other such as range anxiety, charging time, and lack of charging infrastructure. This study proposes a new design concept of charging infrastructure (IMLEV) for EVs using micro-turbine generator technology combined with lithium-ion batteries (LIB) as an off-grid power source. The charging infrastructure architecture was designed based on system components sizing optimisation to meet the power demand. A multi-physics modelling tool was used to develop the control system and the control strategies. Four different charging demand scenarios were implemented to evaluate the system's ability and showed good results in terms of power delivery and stability in IMLEV.
