Besides the negative impact on both the environmental and geological aspect because of the fossil fuel combustionbased power generation, the fossil fuels have almost been depleted, and hence an alternative fuel source is required. To meet the demand of the next generation power system, renewable and clean energy resources, such as solar, wind, tide, geothermal, and natural gas, can be the fuel of choice. In this paper, the concentration is limited to the natural gas generators and electric vehicle charging station besides the delineation of the entire microgrid testbed. In particular, this letter is associated with the modeling of the natural gas generators and the simulations for the different aspects and cases of the regarding system. Besides that, the EV charging station is also delineated with the necessary modelling, simulation, and analysis. All the results are verified by the Matlab/ Simulink simulations and with necessary explanation.
