Definition: Phase Angle Regulating Transformer
Phase Angle Regulating Transformer
Transformers that enable phase-angle control between the primary (source) and the secondary (load) side to create a phase shift between the primary side voltage and the secondary side voltage. The purpose of this phase shift is to control the real power flow through interconnected power systems.
