A phase angle regulator is a special transformer for controlling the flow of power in a three-phase network by shifting the phase angle.
They are highly useful in large scale power networks as to direct the flow of power in certain parts of the network as wished by operators by adjusting the phase of alternative current on a given line.
We mostly find them in substation=transmission substations.

Voltage tagging

Those transformers got special arrangement of their windings, hardly describable with windings:configuration=*, composed of a shunt and series transformers in the same casing.
As a consequence, voltage:primary=* often equals voltage:secondary=* on this particular nature of transformers.
