GE, that is a company that makes Electric Diesel locomotive PIC_1, also makes a Four-Quadrant PS Inverter PIC_2 which can be smoothly supplied by a 3-phase system and be over driven to reverse power the Mains in proper phase and unload power smoothly to the grid..

My inclination is to say its your project so you need to sort it out.

WHY did you select something you have no idea about?

Look at what others have done - analyse how it has been done and what you need to focus on.

If you going to go with IOT then your going to need some kind of processor - can you programme? What processor will you use, what language, what I/O.

You badly need to sit down and write out in words a specification for what your trying to do so you can get your head around it.

It seems to me you just may have bitten off more than you can chew.
