Proportionate NLMS for adaptive feedback control in hearing aids
MetadataShow full item record
© 2017 IEEE. The proportionate normalized least-mean-squares (PNLMS) algorithm is commonly used in acoustic echo cancellation (AEC) context. It provides faster initial convergence and tracking rates compared to the NLMS algorithm for the case of sparse echo impulse responses. The improved PNLMS algorithm (IPNLMS) has been proven to be more powerful than PNLMS by exploiting new rules for computing the weight of each step-size corresponding to each adaptive filter coefficient. However, the application of the PNLMS and the IPNLMS algorithms for adaptive feedback control (AFC) in hearing aids (HAs) is still limited due to high correlation between the loudspeaker and incoming signals. This paper proposes implementations of the PNLMS/IPNLMS algorithms for AFC using the prediction error method (PEM) for hearing aids. The proposed methods have been evaluated for both speech and music incoming signals. Simulation shows that the proposed methods have faster initial convergence and tracking than the PEM using the NLMS algorithm (PEM-NLMS).
