Fuzzy logic controllers (FLCs) have been widely used in many applications. However, they are usually implemented digitally by expensive digital signal processors (DSPs), and the performance is restricted by the sampling period. These disadvantages have limited the applications of FLCs to industrial systems such as switch mode power converters. In this paper, an analog FLC implemented by low-cost devices is proposed. Through analog circuitry, features such as membership function shaping, rule inference and defuzzification are realized. The controller is successfully applied to regulate a PWM boost converter with satisfactory performance.
