Model errors in multiple-input multiple-output adaptive controllers for reduction of broadband noise and vibrations may lead to unstable systems or increased error signals. In this paper, a combination of high-authority control(HAC)and low-authority control (LAC)is considered for improved performance in case of such model errors. A digital implementation of a control system is presented in which the HAC (adaptive MIMO control)is implemented on a CPU and in which the LAC(decentralized control) is implemented on a high-speed Field Programmable Gate Array. Experimental results are given which demonstrate that the HAC/LAC combination leads to performance advantages in terms of stabilization under parametric uncertainties and reduction of the error signal.
