Tap-Changing Transformers and Voltage Regulators
1010607 Tap-Changing Transformers and Voltage RegulatorsSystem voltages fluctuate due to the ever-changing load consumption characteristics of customers. Voltage at the customer's premises must be maintained within a range that will permit the customer load to operate properly. The American National Standard for Electric Power Systems and Equipment—Voltage Ratings (60 Hz) ANSI C84.1 provides detailed information on standard nominal system voltages and voltage ranges. This standard specifies that 120-volt alternating-current nominal voltage must be maintained between 114 and 126 volts (+5 percent). There are several options available to utilize in order to stay…
