Abstract: Worldwide use of DC electrical system is continuously growing, increasing the need for converting DC voltage from one level to another following the requirements. One such DC-DC converter is the Ćuk converter. In its practical operation, the Ćuk converter frequently encounters deviations from its nominal operating conditions. This would consequently result in temporary or permanent change in output voltage from the desired value. To achieve fast transient response or prevent instability upon external disturbances, a good controller will be needed. This paper examines performance comparison between PID and fuzzy-PID methods in controlling the output of a Ćuk converter. The study was conducted through simulation by applying the disturbance in the form of changes in reference voltage, input voltage, and load. Results show that the deviation from the desired output voltage using the fuzzy-PID control is smaller than that of the PID. Results further demonstrate that the fuzzy-PID method offers a faster recovery time than the PID method does. It can be concluded that Ćuk converter with the fuzzy-PID controller performs better than one utilizing the PID controller.
