Estimation of amplitude, instantaneous phase, and frequency of a single-phase grid voltage signal are studied in this letter. The proposed approach uses a novel circular limit cycle oscillator (CLO) coupled with a frequency-locked loop. Due to the nonlinear structure of the CLO, the proposed frequency adaptive CLO technique is robust against various perturbations faced in the practical settings, e.g., the discontinuous jump of phase, frequency, and amplitude. The global stability analysis of the CLO and local stability analysis of the frequency adaptive CLO are performed. Experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed technique over a very recent technique proposed in the literature.
