Phase amps are the amps the motor itself sees at each phase wire. Common controllers like the Lyen can't actually measure phase amps, it can only approximately calculate them based on battery amps and a formula built into it's programming.
There are controllers like Sevcon, Lebowski, and I think Kelly, and other advanced ones, that do actually measure phase current on at least two phases (some all three), but the common ebike controllers don't do this (the hardware is more expensive than that to measure battery current, and requires different programming).
Lyen set the controller for 70 continuous amps
I'm only able to get a max of 70 amps out of it,
Then you're getting exactly what the controller is set for.
If the controller is capable of it, you can program it (or have Lyen do so) to be able to draw more current (if the motor demands it).
But right now, it's doing what it's supposed to.
