GX different values grid vs AC loads

Hi,

My setup actually looks very simple and is just for updates and tests:

1xMultiplus2 5k:

  • AC-IN1 = grid
  • no AC-OUT1/2 connected
  • switch: charger only

PV charger = no PV array connected

no battery connected, PV charger is powered by Multiplus2

to measure grid loads a smartmeter is connected via modbus-tcp.

the problem is, there's a difference between grid L1 and ac-loads L1, but ther shouldn't
L1 ac-loads shows always min. >10W more consumption than the power meter/grid. L2 and L3 show's correct values.

Does someone know the cause of that? the value looks to me calculated, but why and where?

@herculess

One of the phases will have your system self consumption on it most likely.

18W seems about correct for an inverter and gx load. The value is most likely calculated not sure if you are metering both sides?

i am just measuring the grid - which includes the self consumption of the inverter/gx etc.
so it is a software issue, that it calculates a value which isn't there.
