Tap-changers are used to change the turn ratio between windings in a transformer. This ratio determines the voltage ratio between the windings and is essential for the stabilization of network voltage under variable load conditions. This adjustment may be made by an on-load tap-changer, or by a de-energized tap-changer, or by the selection of bolted link positions.
Hitachi ABB Power Grids offers a comprehensive portfolio of on-load tap-changers both the conventional and vacuum type, for high voltage and low voltage regulation, in in-tank and on-tank solutions. Our offering includes a wide range of de-energized tap-changers.
