Indeed. I set it to take only 30W from grid on the Color Display, and I see no feedback going back, its working Ok. Regarding the ESS Assistant, I found it very straight forward, I'm only struggling with the AUX ports on the Quattro, they refuse to obey the BMS relay orders ... I'm ready to go live with this installation, as soon as someone be able to give me a hand on this Aux situation... Victron support in Portugal is a complete joke, I spoke to a few in Lisbon and others in Oporto and guys that say are installing Victron for 20 years never heard of an assistant ... :) Go figure ! Thankx Again !!

Thankx

On your GX device under settings - system setup- battery monitor. Check if the bms is selected under the battery monitor sub menu. Depending on what bms you have there may be other setting to set up like dvcc.

Yes an unfortunate side effect of no grid code.

If you set it to other you can program was. But you will need to on your color control set your grid point up to always be pulling a few hundred watts power from the grid to prevent feedback.

you can program a generator start stop assistant to disconnect or ignore AC power during certain battery states.

Or just manually switch off power to the inverter.

Virtual switch has similar functions too. ESS is just easier to program

Since a grid code for Portugal is not defined, then it unless you know what grid standards your country follows your only options will be None or Other, depending on your feedback laws.
