This paper describes the Matlab simulation results of receiving signals with quadrature modulation, such as OQPSK, using modified phase detector. As the result, the ber-to-snr diagrams were presented for modified and classical detector. The conclusions about its effectiveness were made. There are new methods of modulation signals that allow effective use of the frequency band, and communication systems (eg. trunking) that can effectively distribute the network traffic. However, further development of communication systems is limited by threshold SNR, which is one of the determining factors for the calculation of the capacity of the channel. This paper shows the possibility of increasing noise immunity and capacity of modern cellular communication systems and trunking communication without increasing transmitter power. The improved PLL resistance to noise without changing of dynamic properties is implemented using a modified synchronous phase detector. The proposed scheme of modified PLL device differs from the classical analogue by the narrow band pass filters, placed before the detector, and high-band filter after it. The simulation processes of detection OQPSK signals which were used in modern systems such as cdma2000 were made. For as close as possible to the real analogue, the phase detector in imitation model was implemented with levelling filters. These filters are used in communication systems to reduce intersymbol interference that occurs in the digital channel. Research was carried out for the case of signal detection by classical and modified detectors. The aim of the research was to determine the bit-error rate (BER) in the received signal at a particular value of SNR. The obtained BER-to-SNR values for the classical phase detector were compared with similar ratios given in the open literature. The research results show that modified detector is more efficient than classical detector due to its higher noise immunity. As a result of simulation model of the modified detector research in Matlab program the recommendations for selecting detector filters parameters at high noise level were made. This makes possible to use them in the designing of modern phase demodulators. The modelling results show the potential for increasing the efficiency of existing cellular communications that use complex types of phase modulation with no additional energy costs. The results of modification using narrowband filters before detector of OQPSK signals can significantly improve its noise immunity and energy efficiency.
