This work deals the comparison of perturbation and observation (P and O) as well as asymmetrical fuzzy logic controller (AFLC)-based soft computing approach as a maximum power point tracking (MPPT) means for photovoltaic (PV) network. The simulation of PV power system has been realized using both algorithms for different solar insolations. In this work, Cuk converter has been interfaced between PV array and load for smooth MPPT operations. The grid-tied PV system with unity power factor has estimated using MATLAB/SIMULINK approach. Simulation results explain the effectiveness and robustness of AFLC-based MPPT formulation.
