Im trying to design a solar pv plant using a Y-connector, when using this type of connector two strings can be connected in parallel and combined, towards one string input in an inverter.

We got approval from manufacturer to use this component. However im not sure what is the best way to configure the extra strings in the simulation.
I am thinking of two different methods:
Within system configuration. Disable the option of "use multi-mmpt feature". This would allow me to place as much strings as desired in one inverter.
Modify inverter file, to add more string inputs, while keeping the same number of mppt's.
Are any of these two methods valid for simulating extra strings using Y-connectors?
Or do you perhaps know a different way?
Thanks in advance for the support and time invested.
