Abstract : "Digital phase-locked loops (DPLLs) are widely used for synchronizing and estimating phase information.
In DPLLs, the state estimator is a powerful method to estimate unknown phase information accurately. The Kalman
filter (KF) is a well-known state estimator and has been employed to design DPLLs. However, the KF-based
DPLL limited as it rsults in inaccurate modeling, including nonlinear effects (e.g., quantization error). The particle
filter (PF) is a useful state estimator, but it incurs a large computation burden. In this paper, we propose a novel
approach to design the square root unscented DPLL (SRUDPLL) in order to overcome the defects of the existing
DPLLs. Through simulations, we demonstrate that the proposed method shows better performance than the existing
approach in terms of nonlinear effects."
