Despite the fact that most industrial processes are controlled using the linear PID controller, most chemical processes show a certain degree of nonlinear behavior. Therefore, it is important to provide some kind of nonlinear compensation when necessary. Gain scheduling, or more recently scheduling of multiple linear models (Banerjee et al., 1997; Johansen and Foss, 1997; Narendra et al., 1995), probably is the most widely used scheme in process industries. One of the reasons is that it mimics the look-up table approach (e.g., using different controller settings as the operating condition changes) in industrial practice. In order to provide nonlinear compensation, the following information becomes important:
