A transfer switch, in general, switches load between two sources. An automatic transfer switch or ATS is usually installed where a generator is located to allow the generator to give power while electricity is out.

What is the different of induction transformer and automatic transformer?

Neither of these terms is normally applied to a transformer. You may be thinking of a 'mutual tranformer' and an 'autotransformer'. If so, then a 'mutual transformer' is a transformer which has electrically-isolated primary and secondary windings, whereas an 'autotranformer' (the term, 'auto', is misleading and has nothing to do with the transformer being 'automatic'!) has a common and series winding, meaning that the primary and secondary sides are electrically connected to each other.

Which types of relay is use in power transformer?

A 'power transformer' is a category of transformer used within electricity transmission and primary distribution systems. Relays are widely used with power transformers to provide various types of protection that will act to disconnect the transformer in the event of a fault. Examples of these relays include Buchholz relays, earth-fault relays, and differential relays. Relays are also used to operate a power transformer's automatic tap-changing mechanism in order to compensate for changes in load.
