What's Active Noise Control ? Definition The principle of active sound control has been known for a long time, but its application to real situations is often difficult and raises numerous difficulties. It consists of canceling an undesirable noise by superposing an inverse noise, which results in the destructive interference of the pressure waves. Sound is driven by the propagation of a pressure wave. It is possible to cancel this wave by adding its opposite As you can see on the following animation, the resulting wave if very weak. External noise Analyze and signal processing Resulting wave How is it realized ? First of all, the creation of an opposite sound requires the use of at least one noise source (loud-speaker). Sensors (microphones) are also needed to gather information about the acoustic field. The characteristics of the sources and sensors are closely related to the application concerned. Finally, the heart of noise control is an electronic system (analog or digital), which generates the canceling noise which will interfere with the undesirable noise.

Analog Feedback Active Noise Control Introduction to single channel feedback noise control The system consists of a microphone sensor, a loudspeaker actuator, and an equalizer to correct for the delay from the speaker to the microphone and for the transfer function of the speaker itself. The microphone is usually placed close to the speaker. The system transfer function is increasingly difficult to equalize as the mic moves away from the speaker (the phase change goes from gradual over the bandwidth of interest to very rapid). A disturbance input at the sensor (low frequency acoustic noise) can be attenuated by the proper choice of equalization. The zone of silence around the sensor is approximately 1/10 th of the wavelength of the noise to be attenuated. see Sections 7.3, 7.4 and 7.7 from Active Control of Sound , Nelson and Elliott and Section 6.2 from Active Noise Control Systems , Kuo and Morgan Pick the problem For example, reduce a 100 Hz tone by at least 10 dB in the vicinity of an error microphone Assemble the HW needed Noise generator to measure the system transfer function - use an analyzer with a built in source, buy, or build your own

In complex systems, underlying dynamics governing processes can be poorly known or must be modeled empirically. For example, friction behavior, which is important in motion control, is nonlinear, contains hysteresis, and varies based on lubrication, temperature, humidity, loading, and numerous other factors. Professor Ray's research develops non-model-based methods of estimating process models. Such estimation methods have been demonstrated in motion control systems for applications ranging from semiconductor manufacturing and inspection to precise positioning of read-write heads in disk drives. These methods have also been used for tire force estimation in order to improve the tire design and optimization process. One might envision a vehicle of the future in which tire force estimation methods are employed to provide exquisite control of the forces at the road-tire interface, in order to vastly improve vehicle stability and traction.

    In Fall 1990 as an Assistant Professor Background
    After obtaining his bachelor's degree in 1982, Dr. Cunefare worked for Exxon Corporation for more than five years in a number of gas and oil production and transportation assignments in Texas and Wyoming. He then returned to the academic fold to obtain his master's and doctoral degrees. Dr. Cunefare became a member of the Woodruff School faculty in 1990, though he did not arrive on campus until 1991. Following his graduation from Penn State, Dr. Cunefare spent a research year at the Technical University of Berlin in the Institute for Technical Acoustics, as the Acoustical Society of America's F. V. Hunt Postdoctoral Fellow. Dr. Cunefare arrived in Berlin in time to witness firsthand the economic and political union of the two Germanys. Research
    Dr. Cunefare's research has been directed toward controlling and tailoring the sound produced by engineered structures, such as from transformers, motors, and in aircraft and automobile interiors. He has investigated the means to better model the acoustic radiation from such structures, and how sound and vibration propagate through these structures. He has developed design optimization methods to permit tailoring of the acoustic characteristics of structures by integrating commercially available modeling codes. This optimization might be used, for example, to design and reduce interior noise levels within aircraft cabins by optimally distributing the mass and stiffness of the material in the fuselage. Dr. Cunefare has also investigated how active control might be used to tailor acoustic responses. In active control, secondary powered actuators are used to suppress or cancel the sound produced by some other source, such as from an engine exhaust.

of the Acoustical Society of America (ASA)
2002 Annual Report
The Technical Committee on Noise (TCN) has had a successful year! Although noise is still defined as "unwanted sound", the interest of those in the Acoustical Society, and of the general pubic at large, in noise issues is strong and is growing. There seems to be a sense of purpose and urgency concerning noise and its control that is unprecedented in recent years. Perhaps the awareness of noise has reached the critical mass needed to achieve real results. As always, your technical committee has been a vital exponent for noise awareness and noise control, in fulfillment of the ASA purpose "to increase and diffuse the knowledge of acoustics and promote its practical application." More on that later. The Technical Committee on Noise met twice in the past year: in the fall of 2001 in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, and in the spring of 2002 in Pittsburgh, PA. Both meetings had a great turnout. The ASA meeting in Ft. Lauderdale was well attended, perhaps due to its attractive location. This was a successful meeting, with 7 technical sessions primarily sponsored by TCN, and 5 additional sessions cosponsored with other technical committees. Nearly 80 papers were presented. Topics included classroom acoustics, noise measurement and control case studies, industrial noise prediction, cruise ship acoustics, community noise and noise effects on marine animals. A retrospective session on Miguel Junger's work was held. In addition, Tony Embleton regaled us with his fascinating tutorial on noise propagation and prediction outdoors!
