Fully adaptive feedforward control algorithm is proposed for general multichannel active noise control (ANC) when all the noise transmission channels are uncertain. To reduce the actual canceling error, two kinds of virtual errors are introduced and are forced into zero by adjusting three adaptive FIR filter matrices in an on-line manner, which can result in the canceling at the objective points. Unlike other conventional approaches, the proposed algorithm does not need exact identification of the secondary paths, and so requires neither any dither signals nor the PE property of the source noises, which is a great advantage of the proposed adaptive approach.
