Design and Implementation Buck Converter for 540WP Solar Charger Using Fuzzy Logic Control
Electrical Engineering Department Politeknik Elektronika Negeri Surabaya, Indonesia
This paper presents the details of design and implementation of DC-DC Buck converter as solar charger. This converter is designed for charging a battery with a capacity of 100 Ah (Ampere Hours) which has a charging voltage of 27.4 volts. The constant voltage method is selected on battery charging with the specified set point. To ensure the charging voltage is always on the set point, the duty cycle control of buck converter is set using Fuzzy Logic Control (FLC). The design implementation has been tested on PV (photovoltaic) with 540WP capacity. Based on the test results, this method is quite well implemented on the problem charger
