In this paper, a linear control technique based on a PID controller, which is the most used controller type in the industrial applications, is proposed for the angular position control of fan and plate system that has a nonlinear characteristic. Although the system is nonlinear, in the experimental studies, it is observed that for any small region in which the system can be considered as linear, the system (the linear model obtained around an operating point) has the same characteristic in the all operating regions. A new control approach is proposed by using this property of the system to guarantee the stability and operation without any overshoot.
