Description

The Frequency (Phasor) block measures the frequency of a phasor voltage or current by calculating the derivative of the phase angle variation of the signal, with respect to a synchronous phasor rotating at the specified nominal frequency. A low-pass filter is filtering out the high frequency components of the computed frequency. The unwrapped phase angle is computed and provided at the ΔPhi output.

This diagram shows an example of the Frequency (phasor) block measuring the frequency of a three-phase voltage phasor.

Use this block to measure the frequency of a phasor signal in a power system.
