This study proposed a contribution evaluation through the independent component analysis (ICA) method. The necessity of applying ICA to the evaluation of contribution was investigated through numerical simulation. Moreover, the estimation of the number of input sources, the labeling of signals, and the restoration of the signal amplitude were considered to perform the ICA-based coherence evaluation. The contribution evaluation was performed using the coherence evaluation method and by applying

According to the result of the evaluation, with the coherence evaluation technique it was difficult to calculate the contribution in identifying noise sources that overlap in both spatially and in frequency, because it was challenging to distinguish between the two measured signals. By contrast, the ICA-based coherence evaluation was able to restore the original source and investigate the contribution.
