In this paper, a fuzzy logic control (FLC) is proposed for maximum power point tracking (MPPT) in wind turbine connection to Permanent Magnet Synchronous Generator (PMSG). The proposed fuzzy logic controller tracks the maximum power point (MPP) by measurements the load voltage and current. This controller calculates the load power and sent through the fuzzy logic system. The main goal of this paper is design of the fuzzy logic controller in the model of DC-DC converter (boost converter). This method allows the MPPT controller output (duty cycle) adjusts the voltage input to the converter to track the maximum power point of the wind generator.
