The TCOL tapchanger (or Tap Changer On Load) is commonly used in the local POCO 33/ 66 kV substations for voltage regulation for the feeders which supply the end consumers.
In NZ it's mostly 11 or 22 kV feeders, in other countries similar systems will be used.

Any chance of getting a pic each of the circuit diagram of the transformer and the Tap Changer?.
