This research introduces the simulation of photovoltaic (PV) array to track the peak point (MPPT) using fuzzy logic control. Therefore, real time simulation is performed in MATLAB/Simulink based on a PV model, boost converter and fuzzy logic-based tracker. A comparative study is carried out against perturb and observe (P&O) controller. The fuzzy logic technique based tracker can successfully track the maximum power point very fast and has precise control when compared to the P&O algorithm. The overall we conclude that the MPPT using the fuzzy logic technique takes a fast response and can improve the performance of the PV system.
