Grid voltage measurement

My solar panels have been shutting down on and off for some time due to overvoltage.  My inverter is set shut down at 255 volts.  Is it possible for the grid voltage to be measured and displayed on my smart meter? - after all the smart meter must be calculating power usage based on volts and amps - and can it provide a record of when this occurs?

@BernieC  There is a secret 🤫🤫 menu on most digital meters that will show you voltages, current, PF and many other items. What model do you have?

Hi Will36.

  My inverter is a Solis 1P5K-4G-MX.

  I did find out that Essential Energy had made a change that was in place for about a week. When they restored to normal my solar also went back to normal.
