different transformer, when both are in parallel this type
of alarm observed. what's the meaning of this alarm and why

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.

Answer / karthik
For details of the parallel operation of transformer refer
According to the literature the cause for the out of step
operation maybe due to
1)Change in voltage ratio
2)Change of polarity
