Photovoltaic (PV) is a source of electrical energy derived from solar energy and has a poor level of efficiency. This efficiency is influenced by PV condition, weather, and equipments like Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT). MPPT control is widely used to improve PV efficiency because MPPT can produce optimal power in various weather conditions. In this paper, MPPT control is performed using the Fuzzy Logic-Particle Swarm Optimization (FL-PSO) method. This FL-PSO is used to get the Maximum Power Point (MPP) and minimize the output power oscillation from PV. From the simulation results using FL-PSO, the values of voltage, and output power from the boost converter are 183.6 V, and 637.7 W, respectively. The ripple of output power from PV with FL-PSO is 69.5 W. Then, the time required by FL-PSO reaches MPP is 0.354 s. Compared with MPPT control based on the PSO method, the MPPT technique using FL-PSO indicates better performance and faster than the PSO.
