This work includes Zeta voltage converter controller design and implementation. The mathematical model of the zeta converter circuit operating in the continuous conduction mode in state-space form is presented. Fuzzy Logic controller and hybrid Fuzzy Logic controller/ particle swarm optimization techniques are used to designed controller. Analysis and comparison between simulation and practical responses of open loop, close loop fuzzy logic controller and hybrid fuzzy logic/particle swarm optimization controller results are performed for different, working conditions such as sudden changes in the load resistance and reference voltages. The results show that there are significant improvement in the results for the proposed hybrid FLC/PSO control technique.
