Abstract: This paper presents the design and implementation of fuzzy logic controller for the HPCI DC-DC converter. The converter contains non-linear elements making the mathematical model more complex which instigate the use of FLC. The proposed FLC is implemented using microcontroller AT89C52. The closed loop hardware results of the HPCI DC-DC converter is presented and discussed.

Keywords: fuzzy logic controllers; DC-DC converters; fuzzy control; microcontroller AT89C52; power electronics; controller design; high performance coupled inductor; HPCI.
