In this paper, according to the base-adaptive detecting method of harmonic current for APF, there had contradiction between detecting accuracy and dynamic response. It had been proved that this system is a symmetrical notch-filter. Based on analysis above, this paper is proposed improved-adaptive detecting method. A low-pass filter has been in base-adaptive system. We first discussed the stability of improved system. Then theoretical analysis and simulation test shows the bandwidth had been reduced nearby reference frequency. Simulation had showed that the dynamic performance was in a period and the harmonic distortion rate was no more than 1.7%.
