This paper proposes a new three-phase positive sequence detector. The scheme is based on a stationary reference frame and a Moving Average Filter (MAF) that guarantees the complete cancellation of harmonics and grid imbalances. The performance of the MAF is mathematically analyzed and a proper selection of the optimal filter’s window width is realized. The proposed detector operates in open loop and there is no PI controller to be tuned. Thus, the dynamic response and simplicity is improved compared to other solutions. Performance of the proposed detector is verified through simulation and experiment. It shows very good performance under extreme grid voltage conditions, allowing fast detection of the grid voltage positive sequence (within one grid voltage cycle).
