Cognitive radio is a befitting hopeful technology for future. Spectrum sensing is the most critical function of cognitive radio. Most of the spectrums sensing processes proposed earlier become impractical at lower signal to noise ratio conditions. Paper presents advanced cooperative spectrum sensing technique used in cognitive radio (CR) systems. By spectrum sensing it detects the presence of a primary user (PU) on a concerned spectrum. The accuracy of spectrum sensing depends on both sensing time and number of sensing nodes (secondary users) participating in the sensing process. We derive the optimal number of secondary users for cooperative spectrum sensing based on adaptive threshold energy detection to minimize spectrum detection error in conventional as well as improved energy detector.
