We introduce and investigate by numerical simulations a number of models of emotional agents at the square lattice. Our models describe the most general features of emotions such as the spontaneous emotional arousal, emotional relaxation, and transfers of emotions between different agents. Group emotions in the considered models are periodically fluctuating between two opposite valency levels and as result the mean value of such group emotions is zero. The oscillations amplitude depends strongly on probability p_{s} of the individual spontaneous arousal. For small values of relaxation times τ we observed a stochastic resonance, i.e. the signal to noise ratio SNR is maximal for a non-zero p_{s} parameter. The amplitude increases with the probability p of local affective interactions while the mean oscillations period increases with the relaxation time τ and is only weakly dependent on other system parameters. Presence of emotional antenna can enhance positive or negative emotions and for the optimal transition probability the antenna can change agents emotions at longer distances. The stochastic resonance was also observed for the influence of emotions on task execution efficiency.
