Rotating machines such as motors, generate noise at the fundamental frequency and its harmonics. The narrowband active noise control (NANC) algorithm is widely used to cancel such noise. Traditional feedforward NANC systems use non-acoustic sensors to measure rotation speeds, and then a bank of signal generators produce synchronized tonal signals as the reference signals according to the fundamental frequency of the undesired noise. However, the non-acoustic sensors such as encoders usually cost a lot and are not reliable. This study proposes using the feedback ANC structure and incorporates with several adaptive line enhancers (ALEs) to generate the reference signals. Without using non-acoustic sensors, the proposed system only updates the center frequency of the first ALE to track the fundamental frequency change, which greatly reduces complexity of the proposed ANC system. The frequency mismatch (FM) problem is overcome by properly setting the bandwidths of the ALE. Performance were verified by using both simulations and real-time experiments.
