In our previous work, we developed a new actuator placement algorithm that is capable of selecting the best actuator placement for active noise control problems over a broad band of frequencies. The actuator selection algorithm is based on a novel extension of the Householder QR subset selection algorithm. The QR algorithm uses the l2 matrix norm as a performance measure. In this paper, numerical results generated by that algorithm are compared with numerical results generated using five different performance measures. These measures, which are based on different matrix norms and functions of the actuator frequency responses, yield actuator placements that result in active noise control systems with improved performance and robustness.
