Common active noise control (ANC) algorithms need to identify the secondary path transfer functions between the output of the adaptive control filters and the error sensors, and then use the information to guide the direction of control filter coefficient updating. Recently, Zhou et al. proposed an ANC algorithm without secondary path identification, and we improve their algorithm in this paper. For single-tone and narrowband noise control, the direction of control filter coefficient updating has four choices 180deg, 0deg, and plusmn90deg. We test the four update directions and select the one that works the best. If for all four update directions, the system converges slowly or diverges, we adjust the step size and test again with the new step size. The multitone and broadband noise control problems are converted into several single-tone and narrowband noise control problems by means of a frequency-domain delayless subband architecture. Compared to Zhou's algorithm, our proposed method yields good performance and converges quickly. Simulation results confirm the effectiveness of our proposed algorithm.
