# Active noise control: a tutorial review

@inproceedings{Kuo1999ActiveNC, title={Active noise control: a tutorial review}, author={Sen Maw Kuo and Dennis R. Morgan}, year={1999} }

Active noise control (ANC) is achieved by introducing a cancelling "antinoise" wave through an appropriate array of secondary sources. [...] Key Method In this paper, the basic adaptive algorithm for ANC is developed and analyzed based on single-channel broad-band feedforward control. This algorithm is then modified for narrow-band feedforward and adaptive feedback control. In turn, these single-channel ANC algorithms are expanded to multiple-channel cases. Expand
