There are two types of tap changers: One typically
deals with compensation for dropping voltages out on
distant rural distro lines, so yes, you are correct,
these internal type tap changers adjust voltage
negligigibly...at least for our purposes. The OTHER
type of tap changer is more major: Many transformer
mfrs have adopted pseudo-universal models, and employ
an external tap switch. 7200-14000 models are very
common, especially with utilities that use different
distro voltages on there networks. I see these about
every day.
