    For a class of scalar nonlinear systems with switching input a controller is designed using design theory for linear systems. A stability criterion is derived that contains all the physical system parameters, allowing a stability analysis without the need for numerical simulation. The results are motivated by and applied to a model of a bulk storage room for food products. It is shown that for this model a controller with excellent robustness and performance properties can be designed.
