Abstract : This paper proposes a Variational Mode Decomposition (VMD) based approach for enhancement of speech signals distorted by white Gaussian noise.VMD is a data adaptive method which decomposes the signal into intrinsic mode functions (IMFs) by using the Alternating Direction Method of Multipliers (ADMM). Each IMF or mode will contain a center frequency and its harmonics. This paper tries to exploreVMDas a Speech enhancement technique. In the proposed method, the noisy speech signal is decomposed into IMFs using VMD. The noisy IMFs are enhanced using two methods; VMD based wavelet shrinkage (VMD-WS) and VMD based MMSE log STSA (VMD-MMSE). The speech signal distorted with different noise levels are enhanced using the VMD based methods. The level of noise reduction and speech signal quality are measured using the objective quality measures. © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2016.
