This paper presents an analysis by which the dynamic performances of a permanent magnet brushless DC (PMBLDC) motor is controlled through a hysteresis current loop and an outer speed loop with different controllers. The dynamics of the photovoltaic pumping drive system with (PI) and a fuzzy logic (FL) speed controllers are presented. In order to optimize the overall system efficiency, a maximum power point tracker is also used. Simulation is carried out by formatting the mathematical model for photovoltaic source, MPPT, motor and pump load. The results for such complicated and nonlinear system, with FL speed controller show improvement in transient response of PMBLDC drive over conventional PI. The effectiveness of the FL controller is also demonstrated. © 2011 Elsevier Inc.
