    I am not surei understand your application.

    If you have 3 phase power and two grid tied single phase AC inverters, technically, you just connect them up per code (single phase each) and you are good to go. The 3 phase meter will record your power correctly.

    In practice, 3 phase power is done differently by different utilities (Wye. Delta, open Delta, different voltages, regulations on phase imbalance, loss of phase, billing for gt solar, etc.).

    You are in India (I think), and i have no idea regarding your standards.

    Are you off grid trying to measure your power usage with an old grid meter?

    Since they aren't synced, I would think only one at a time...

    - Assorted other systems, pieces and to many panels in the closet to not do more projects.

    I think this is GT inverters (single phase) in a business or home served by with 3 phase utility power.

    To save money with GT solar...
