English term or phrase: Grid parallel operation
***Grid parallel operation*** provides a useful assessment of how well the power plant interfaces with the grid from a safety viewpoint and how the power plant’s inverter copes with voltage flickers, spikes due to lightning, and the like.

Japanese translation:配電系統接続運転
Explanation:
The word "grid" or "electric power grid" means a system of electric lines or electricity distribution system (=配電系統).

I am not sure at all about the meaning of "grid parallel operation", but the following two resources indicate that it means "operating a power generator in connection with the commercial electricity distribution system." I believe it is called parallel because the connected generator works in parallel with existing power plants of an electricity company.

Grid-independent -- A grid-independent fuel cell can operate when not connected to the electrical grid, such as in remote rural areas.
Grid-parallel -- A grid-parallel fuel cell is designed to function when connected to the electrical grid and . . . .

For example, will the system use
natural gas or propane? What are the annual loads
and patterns? Will the system be grid-independent, grid-parallel (connected), or dual mode?
