  United States Patent: 4,481,663 - Spranger, Paul B.
The autotransformer is selected such that the input impedance between the ground or common connection of the autotransformer and the input at tap TP15 is equal to the value of inductor L8 (0.267 millihenrys) when the output of the autotransformer is open circuited.
Because of the autotransformer action, the requirement that the open circuit inductance at the input of autotransformer T13 be 0.267 millihenrys can also be considered to be the requirement that the open circuit inductance of the autotransformer be 0.835 millihenrys when viewed at the output terminals.
Autotransformer T13, of course, could be replaced by a two-winding transformer having a small short circuit input inductance and having an open circuit input inductance equivalent to an inductance of 0.267 millihenrys.

  Autotransformer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Autotransformers are frequently used in power applications to interconnect systems operating at different voltage classes, for example 138 kV to 66 kV for transmission.
An autotransformer can be used to provide a slight boost (or step-up) to correct an undervoltage condition or buck (step-down) to correct an overvoltage condition.
As with two-winding transformers, autotransformers may be equipped with many taps and automatic switchgear to allow them to act as automatic voltage regulators, to maintain a steady voltage at the customers' service during a wide range of load conditions.

 Adjusting Transformer Voltage with an Autotransformer
If the autotransformer is used to alter the power line voltage, then its secondary voltage changes the line voltage by the same amount as the secondary rating, in this case, 6.3V.
The autotransformer must have a secondary current rating at least equal to the primary current rating of the subject transformer.
When an autotransformer is used to boost voltage over a subject transformers design rating, limit the total VA of the subject transformer to its specified rating.

 Transformer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An autotransformer has only a single winding, which is tapped at some point along the winding.
AC or pulsed voltage is applied across a portion of the winding, and a higher (or lower) voltage is produced across another portion of the same winding.
By exposing part of the winding coils and making the secondary connection through a sliding brush, an autotransformer with a near-continuously variable turns ratio can be obtained, allowing for very small increments of voltage.

 why a glups
An autotransformer is a tapped winding transformer that changes the voltage available locally to the voltage required by a particular load.
An autotransformer, with a single tapped winding, is generally preferred to an isolation transformer, with 2 separate windings, for many reasons.
Autotransformers perform in much the same way as the transformer that the electric company uses to bring electricity to a building.

 Filtering and boosting a signal from a drive circuit patent invention
Also, in accordance with some embodiments of the invention, the autotransformer filter 116 also boosts an amplitude of the output 114 such that the amplitude of the output 114 is greater than (stepped up from or boosted from) the amplitude of the input 118.
The ability of the autotransformer filter 116 to both perform filtering and amplitude boosting tasks reduces complexity in the equipment used for providing signals down the cable 112 to the motor 104, since use of separate filter and transformer units can be avoided.
Boosting or stepping up of the amplitude of an output signal of the autotransformer filter 116 refers to receiving an input signal at the autotransformer filter 116 having a first amplitude, and increasing the amplitude to a second, greater amplitude that defines the amplitude of the output signal from the autotransformer 116.

 Autotransformer Use: "Stealing Power?"
The most important motivation for using an autotransformer is that certain appliances, most notably an air conditioner, may overheat and shut off or suffer permanent damage if operated for long periods at a voltage substantially lower than normal.
But the use of an autotransformer when the campground voltage is low will indeed result in you getting more power at the expense of your neighbors, whose voltage will drop even lower when you turn on your autotransformer.
This is because when the autotransformer increases the inside voltage by 10%, (which is a 20% increase in power), it also must increase the current drawn from the power pedestal by a bit over 20%.

 Autotransformer Regulator Inverts 12V to -12V - Maxim/Dallas
Abstract: The autotransformer provides an alternative means of extending the output voltage range of an inverting DC-DC regulator besides using an external MOSFET or a flyback transformer.
With an autotransformer, the input-output voltage can be extended beyond the specification limit of the integrated circuit (IC).
Autotransformer T1 limits the voltage across IC1, allowing use of a high-efficiency chip (with 21V absolute-maximum voltage) in this inverting dc-dc regulator.

While starting an AC induction motor at reduced voltage, the line current and motor current may or may not be the same, depending on the type of reduced voltage starter used.
However, in an autotransformer starter, the line current and motor current are not the same.
Using a motor with a 600% inrush current and connecting to the 50% voltage tap of the autotransformer, the motor current will be 300% (50% of 600%), but the line current will be only 150% (25% of 600%).

 Stereophile: Sonic Euphoria PLC passive line stage
Autotransformer, autoformer, tapped transformer—there are several names for the devices that the PLC uses as a volume control, and that distinguish it from the Placette and most other passive devices.
The output connections of the autotransformer are the same ground reference point as the input, and whichever of these intermediate taps is selected by the position of the volume knob.
Another benefit is that while a resistor attenuator always increases the output impedance of the source/attenuator combo, the autotransformer can actually lower the output impedance, better enabling the combo to drive long cables and power amps.
