This paper presents an enhanced frequency adaptive demodulation technique for grid-synchronization of grid-connected converters (GCC) in variable frequency condition. Demodulation works by generating
demodulated voltages which contain undesired double frequency components. As a result, high-order low-pass filters (LPF) with high cutoff frequency are required to eliminate the undesired components. This reduces the dynamic performance. Frequency adaptive demodulation technique enhances the dynamic performance by rejecting the double frequency components as opposed to filtering, however, at the cost of additional computational complexity. This paper overcomes this problem by using double demodulation without recreating the double frequency component for rejection purpose. This reduces the computational complexity significantly. Suitability of proposed method is verified through
numerical simulation and experimental study. Comparative study with existing frequency adaptive demodulation and second-order generalized integrator phase-locked loop (SOGI-PLL) techniques demonstrate the validity and performance improvement by the proposed technique.
