Explanation:
I have this in my personal glossary from previous translations on the subject.

El regulador en carga o cambiador
de tomas, que son las denominaciones
más usuales, es un equipo que
permite modificar las tensiones de
un transformador, sin que sea necesario
sacar la máquina de servicio.

Tap changers are divided into two types: On-load and Off-load. The on-load tap changer allows section of ratio change while the transformer is in service. This would mean the ratio of a transformer can be changed while power is still passing through it. The most common example of this type of on-load tap changer is a Voltage Regulator.
