A multiple channel active noise control (ANC) system with several secondary sources, error sensors, and reference sensors has been used for complicated noise fields. Centralized multiple channel ANC systems have been proposed, however implementation of such systems becomes difficult according to increase of control points. Distributed multiple channel ANC systems which have more than a controller are considered. This paper proposes a new implementation of distributed multiple channel ANC systems based on simultaneous equations methods. In the proposed algorithm, communications between controllers are permitted to distribute the computational burden and to improve the performance of noise reduction. This algorithm shows good performances for noise cancellation and tracking of changes in the error paths.
