Residual Error Shaping in Active Noise Control - A Case Study

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 1196)


The aim of the paper is to utilize the possibility of residual error shaping in active noise control system creating spatial zones of quiet in enclosure. The filtered-x least mean squares algorithm that uses additional residual error shaping filter is applied for attenuation of broadband disturbances. Simulations conducted with the use of simplified and real plant models give an insight into the performance and convergence behavior of the FX-LMS ng filter. The conclusions on the behavior of the FX-LMS ng were broadened onto the problem of modeling of anti-aliasing filters application in the error signal measurement path.
