I have seen a hardware version of this with a notch filter at the main frequency and high pass and low pass filters as well. The output was amplified and rectified. The source of the signal was from a clamp on current transformer.

I suspect that you could do the same thing in DSP.

You can use switch capasitor filter and scan your frequency band..maxim has that chips(max 8 order) but these chips has 20Khz BW.
