This standard covers electrical and mechanical performance and test requirements for on-load tap-changers of both resistor and reactor types, deenergized tap-changers, and their motor-drive mechanisms installed in power and distribution transformers, reactors and voltage regulators.

IEEE/IEC International Standard for TAP-changers --Part 2: Application guidelines
This part of IEC 60214 is intended to assist in the selection of tap-changers designed in accordance with IEC 60214-1 or IEEE Std C57.131 for use in conjunction with the tapped windings of transformers or reactors. Requirements, references and definitions relevant to either IEC 60214-1 or IEEE Std C57.131 are given and their use is described in Clause 4. It is also intended to assist in understanding the various types of tap-changers and their associated equipment available. These application guidelines cover on-load tap-changers (resistor and reactor types) and de-energized tap-changers.
These standards have been replaced with a revised version of the standard, or by a compilation of the original active standard and all its existing amendments, corrigenda, and errata.
IEEE Standard Requirements for Load Tap Changers
Electrical and mechanical performance and test requirements for load tap changers installed in power transformers and voltage regulating transformers of all voltage and kVA ratings are covered.
These standards have been removed from active status through a ballot where the standard is made inactive as a consensus decision of a balloting group.
No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards
These standards are removed from active status through an administrative process for standards that have not undergone a revision process within 10 years.
IEEE Standard Requirements for Tap Changers
This standard covers electrical and mechanical performance and test requirements for tap changers installed in voltage regulating power and distribution transformers of all voltage and kVA ratings. It covers load tap changers (LTCs), also known as on-load tap changers (OLTCs), which can change taps while the transformer is energized and carrying load; and it covers de-energized tap changers (DETCs), also known as off-circuit tap changers, which may be operated only while the transformer is not energized. For load tap changers, this standard covers both resistor and reactor types. It also covers certain aspects of the attendant tap changer motor-drive mechanism. It does not cover the tap changer control system (manual or automatic).
