Active Sound Control Approach Using Virtual Microphones for Formation of Quiet Zones at a Chair Ryu, Seokhoon; Kim, Jeakwan; Lee, Young-Sup;
In this study, theoretical and experimental analyses were performed for creating and moving the zone of quiet(ZoQ) to the ear location of a sitter by using active sound control technique. As the ZoQ is actively created at the location of the error microphone basically with an active sound control system using an algorithm such as the filtered-x least mean square(FxLMS), the virtual microphone control(VMC) method was considered to move the location of the ZoQ to around the sitter`s ear. A chair system with microphones and loudspeakers on both sides was manufactured for the experiment and thus an active headrest against the swept narrowband noise as the primary noise was implemented with a real-time controller in which the VMC algorithm was embedded. After the control experiment with and without the VMC method, the location variation of the ZoQ by analyzing the error signals measured by the error and the virtual microphones. Therefore, it is observed that the FxLMS with the VMC technique can provide the re-location of the ZoQ from the error microphone location to the virtual microphone location. Also it is found that the amount of the attenuation difference between the two locations was small.
