Conjugate Gradient Techniques for Multichannel Acoustic Echo Cancellation in Frequency Domain
Multichannel acoustic cancellation problem requires working with extremely large impulse responses. Multirate adaptive schemes such as the partitioned block frequency-domain adaptive filter (PBFDAF) are good alternatives and are widely used in commercial echo cancellation systems nowadays. However, being a Least Mean Square (LMS) derived algorithm, the convergence speed may not be fast enough under some circumstances. In this paper we propose a new scheme which combines frequency-domain adaptive filtering with conjugate gradient techniques in order to speed up the convergence time. The new algorithm (PBFDAF-CG) is developed and its behavior is compared against previous PBFDAF schemes.
