By the conventional ceramic sintering method, doped lead zirconate titanate (PZT) samples with the chemical composition 0.55PbTiO3-0.43PbZrO3-0.02[ Pb(Cd0,5W0, 5)O3] have been obtained from oxides PbO, ZrO2, TiO2, CdO, WO3. For the samples of A series, synthesis was led in the 1223 K temperature by 3 hours and in the case of the samples of B series, by 6 hours in the same temperature but in two parts (each 3 hours long). Both series were sintered in the 1423 K temperature by 6 hours. All samples were subjected to polarization ( ${\rm T}_{\rm pol.}=423$ K, ${\rm E}_{\rm pol.}=30$ kV/cm, ${\rm t}_{\rm pol.}=30$ min.) and next dielectric ( ${\varepsilon^{\rm T}}_{33}$/ $\varepsilon_{0}$, tg$\delta)$ properties were measured for the samples in the shape of discs. For the samples of B series, larger values of the dielectric permittivity ${\varepsilon^{\rm T}}_{33}$/ $\varepsilon_{0}$ were observed, as well as lower values of the dielectric loss tg$\delta$.
