    Abstract

    In the European Union funded FACTS project the development of Active Noise Control (ANC) systems for vehicles utilising distributed actuators based on ElectroMechanical Film (EMFi) technology was started. Two car demonstrations were built, one for the "traditional" active engine order noise control and one for the attenuation of broad band noise radiation of the dash panel, caused by the vibrations of the panel. Results show that noise reduction using membrane mode EMFi actuators is fully effective at higher engine orders (the noise peaks are reduced to background noise level), when the frequencies are above 200 Hz and the noise levels are reasonable (below 80 dB). Also the broad band noise radiation caused by the dash panel vibrations could be attenuated some 5 dB in the frequency range 150 - 300 Hz, but some amplification was present at higher frequencies
