Reduced greenhouse effect with environment friendly feature, abundance of raw materials and need of alternate electrical energy resource have revived the interest in bio-electrification technology. This paper illustrates a detailed explanation about this electricity engendering technology. The introduction on renewable energy importance for energy sector, specially focused on present energy condition of Bangladesh is followed by the prospect of poultry based biogas for the country. Theoretical foundations on electricity generation process and economic assessment for a medium scale poultry farm are also presented. With a desire to propose a control circuit, open loop behavior of buck converter is examined through MATLAB/Simulink software with the help of state space equation. To achieve constant output voltage for any input variations, design of a close loop PD controller is carried out and MATLAB/Simulink simulation is presented, which is the main contribution of this paper.
