In this study, small-scale solar plants (SPs) coupled with smart public transport system and its coordination with the grid have been presented. Electric buses (EBs) are used for mass transportation and charged from the energy points provided through the ring road of the Guwahati city, Assam, India. Both, the energy storage device and the small-scale SP are connected to each energy point. The maximum priority is given to use solar energy while reducing the energy consumption from the grid to support the EBs. Each energy point consists of a fuzzy logic controller to perform the control actions. The simulations have been carried out to show the system response for all the seasons of a year.
