Active noise control (ANC) is a methodology for attenuating noise based on adaptive signal processing algorithms. ANC is well assessed for the attenuation of Gaussian noise, but the rejection of non-Gaussian impulsive noise signals represents a much more critical task, that may even impair algorithm convergence. To overcome this problem the adaptive filter weight update process must be modified by discarding or discounting samples associated with impulsive noise. In this work we propose two novel ANC algorithms for the attenuation of impulsive noise both for invariant and time-varying noise distributions.
