1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data What is meant by the term tapping in power system , I studied in my textbook that generally from feeders no tapping is taken to the consumers , therefore current loading of feeder remains the same along its length. I was not getting what is being referred here ..? 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I am familiar with the tapping we use in case of transformer which is the varying the number of turns , which further changes the voltage ratio.. Is this the same sense tapping in power supply system is being used??
