In this paper, the statistical combination of Power Normalization Cepstral Coefficient (PNCC) and Mel Frequency Cepstral Coefficient (MFCC) features in robust closed set speaker identification is studied. Feature normalization and warping together with late score-based fusion are also exploited to improve performance in the presence of channel and noise effects. In addition, combinations of score and feature-based approaches are considered with early and/or late fusion; these systems use different feature dimensions (16, 32). A 4th order G.712 type IIR filter is employed to represent handset degradation in the channel. Simulation studies based on the TIMIT database confirm the improvement in Speaker Identification Accuracy (SIA) through the combination of PNCC and MFCC features in the presence of handset and Additive White Gaussian Noise (AWGN) effects.
