Disadvantages of Over modulation
If modulation index is greater than 1
a.) The baseband signal is not preserved in the envelope of the AM signal
b.) The recovered signal is distorted
c.) It is called over modulation
d.) All of the above
Correct Answer: d) all of the above
Modulation index is the measure of extent to which the parameter of the carrier is varied in accordance with the modulating signal. If modulation index is greater than 1, or the modulation percentage is more than 100%, it is called over modulation.
The baseband signal is not preserved in the envelope of the AM signal and therefore, the recovered signal is distorted at the output of the receiver.
