We know that OpenFlow is the southbound API used for communication in SDN. I would like to know What is the north bound API used and where can I do more research about it.

This a very generic question. First, OpenFlow is only one of the possible Southbound (SB) APIs, if you explore the OpenDaylight protocol projects, you will find many more SB protocols implemented.

Same with the Northbound (NB) APIs, they depend mostly on the use case you're trying to deploy, there is no one accepted standard. Many of the app projects expose their own APIs, which can then be explored using the MD-SAL API explorer, by loading the odl-mdsal-apidocs Karaf feature.
