    This Letter proposes demodulation type PLL for phase and frequency estimation of single-phase system that can reject DC offset. Using results from the adaptive estimation literature, this Letter proposes a linear parametric model-based initial phase angle estimation approach. Then by using differentiation and integration operation on the estimated initial phase angle, the frequency is estimated. This avoids the use of any low-pass filter unlike conventional demodulation- based technique. Moreover, unlike existing demodulation-based technique, the proposed technique can completely reject DC offset. Comparative experimental results, provided with state-of-the-art DC offset rejection-based enhanced phase locked-loop, clearly demonstrate the suitability of the proposed technique.
