This paper presents a method for active noise control (ANC) in a duct by using a ring-type smart foam. The ring-type smart foam consists of an elastic porous material of lining shape and a PVDF film embedded in the material. The PVDF element acts as a secondary sound source to reduce the noise. Active noise control using a ring-type smart foam is only effective locally because of the way to excite radially. To enlarge the quiet zone, the duct is lined with additional acoustic foam between the smart foam and the error microphone. When cancellation path is optimized by the LMS/RLS algorithm, the computation power is reduced while control performance is maintained. The filtered-x LMS algorithm is used to minimize the error signal.
