In conventional active noise control (ANC) system, the primary noise is attenuated over the frequency band of interest based simply on the error signal, which does not take into account the human perception of noise. Hence, researchers have developed psychoacoustic ANC system to improve its noise reduction performance from psychoacoustic point of view. However, in this psychoacoustic ANC system, there may be a disturbance that is uncorrelated with the primary noise at the error sensor, which can severely degrade the system's noise reduction performance. Hence, in this paper, a psychoacoustic hybrid ANC system is proposed, which can simultaneously control both the correlated primary noise and uncorrelated disturbance from psychoacoustic point of view. Loudness is used as the psychoacoustic criterion for evaluating the system's noise reduction performance. Simulation results show the effectiveness of the proposed psychoacoustic hybrid ANC system.
