ESS Throttling MPPT's to zero, when Grid Feed In is active.

Hello ALL!

(I'm a newbi in posting to this community, please be kind to me
If I doesn't "present" my problem in the short, clear and detailed way. :-)
)

I see a lot of posts related to MPPT's that are holding back there power.
But none of them seems to be an exact match for my problem.

In my ESS configured system i have a feed-in limit set to 12kw, witch I cant reach at the moment.
But i have seen 10+kW.

My house is supplied by 3-phase 16A grid.

I have one Multiplus-II 5000 on L1 and another on L2 configured as 2-phase..
In front of my Multi's I have a SMA TriPower 7kW.

Could someone please help me to understand, and help me fix the problem I have.
More detailed info you will find in supplied PDF.

Please post me if additional info is needed!
I really want to solve this issue asap.

Some additional info.

Before summer 2021. I upgraded my fully functional installation, same components as I have now. But I rewired my 24V batterybank to 48V and changed my Multiplus 24/5000 to two Multiplus-II 48/5000.

It is after this change I got my problem with MPPT power throttling.

I am facing the same issue. I have a 12.5 kilowatt solar capacity but when the grid is present, the MPPTs throttle down to 200 Watts and all the consumption comes from the grid which is super expensive.

Have you tried removing the feed back limit to see if that fixes it?

I don't have a configured feedback limit set in my system.

I use the Energy Meter EM24, over RS485.
