This paper presents the experimental results of using the single-channel adaptive feedback active noise control (AFANC) algorithm with an innovative setup to achieve global attenuation of industrial machine noise in settings such as large manufacturing plants. An effective solution of using active/passive techniques and three distributed error sensors is proposed. The performance of the AFANC algorithm is verified by real-time experiments using the TMS320C32 DSP to control vibratory bowl and welding power generator noises. The experiments results show that this single-channel AFANC system can effectively reduce the noise level and is cost effective, portable, and easy for installation to control many noisy sources in large spaces.
