Hi Victron Community,
I am currently setting up a grid parallel ESS with a Multiplus 2, a Venus GX and two 5KWh Tesla Modules. I already have the Current Transformer/sensor (https://www.victronenergy.com/accessories/current-transformer-for-multiplus-ii ) for the Multiplus but no Energy Meter ET112.
Is my understanding correct, that
1. AC-In on the multiplus is bi-directional and can import to charge the batteries and export to power loads (I do not have any loads connected to AC-Out 1 or 2.)
2. I do not need to install the Energy Meter if I have the current transformer connected to the grid connection? (see picture below)
What changes to I have to make in my VE Config and ESS controls on the Venus to tell the Multiplus/Venus that the Current sensor is supposed to measure the import/export at the grid connection? I cannot see any options here apart from the tick-box in VE Config.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Phil
Schematics of my setup are below (except for the "No break loads, which I do not have):
