This paper presents a successful implementation of a fuzzy logic controller structure for switch-mode power-stage dc-dc converters and evaluates experimentally its sensitivity for variable supply voltages and load resistance variations. The optimum topology of the controller structure is determined using experimental tests. An advanced test-bed system is used to evaluate the robustness capacities of the controller under varying loading conditions and input voltage variations. The experiment is performed using a low-cost microcontroller PIC16F877 to verify the design performance over a wide range of operating conditions. The controller shows very interesting tracking features and is able to cope with load changes and input voltage variations. The proposed controller structure is general and can be directly applied to any dc-dc converter topologies. The fuzzy controller structure is compared experimentally with the existing proportional-integral control used in industry. It yields a better dynamic performance without overshoot
