Answer / nasseem

Out of step means that the Two transformers at different tap.
i.e. TR-1 at tap n and TR-2 at tap n+1 or n-1.
And as you know the two transformers should have same tap
"if the two transformers have same tap size i.e 1.25% for
example" when it operated in parallel to prevent the
circulation current between the two transformers.

So it seems in your case if we assume TR-1 is master and
TR-2 is follower TR-1 change its tap position while TR-2
still at it is original tap.
