Conical tank process is a nonlinear model. The nonlinearity arises due to nonlinear parametric variation in terms of volume of the tank. The application of conical tank process is in chemical industry, paper mills, etc. This paper discusses a comparative study between conventional controller and fractional-order controller. Mathematical linear model of the system is derived, and performance improvement is shown on the application of fractional-order control.
