In this age of depleting fossil fuels, more emphasis has to be placed on the renewable sources of energy. People are conscious about a clean and pollution free environment and thus a primary candidate in this respect would be solar energy. In this paper the maximum power point of a PV system is tracked using a fuzzy logic controller. The advantages of a fuzzy logic controller are that it is robust, doesn't require the exact knowledge of the model and is relatively simple to design. Using an FLC
