Impulse noise has long been known for causing transmission errors. The current thesis presents a method of mitigating impulse noise using a Normalized LMS canceler which takes as reference input the common mode signal and subtracts the adapted version from the differential mode signal. A simple detection method for the impulse noise was devised. The effect of the step size on the stability and convergence of the algorithm was investigated. Multiple Matlab simulations were conducted for the training phase of the canceler, using sets of impulses generated by various sources. In the end, the simplifications this model involves were explored and suggestions for improvement were given.
