Abstract—The worldwide use of renewable energies sources is steadily growing, due to demand to get new means that allows the support of massive use that it give in the common life, with the final purpose of decrease the use of nature reserve to produce it, in this case is exhibited the necessity to create systems to generated resources in an efficient way, using unlimited power infeed, as example we found the solar energy. This work shows the results obtained by perform a comparative analysis between the static behaviors and the design of a fuzzy logic controller for solar photovoltaic tracking system, defining the photovoltaic position from the maximum solar irradiation presented in 90 degrees; for verification of the result obtained by the controller, we make de simulation of a solar irradiation based in the data of the weather station of the Corporación Autónoma Regional de Cundinamarca (CAR), situated in the campus of the Nueva Granada Military university.

Index Terms—renewable energies sources, DC micro-grids, fuzzy control, photovoltaic solar energy, solar irradiance
