Selection and Application of Tapchangers to Transformers

  • T. V. SridharEmail author
Part of the Power Systems book series (POWSYS)


In this chapter we consider the selection criteria and applications of tapchangers to transformers. The transformer is a flexible component in the power network. It can take many forms and shapes to satisfy the user’s requirements. Its companion the tapchanger follows suit. In this chapter we consider many “standard” applications, and some unusual executions of tapchangers.
