I think this means that 14.4kv goes in, 24.9kv comes out.
I have seen them listed this way on most pages, this trannie

3kVA will be smaller, easier to move, and more "portable" for
demostrations.  With the larger size, you cross the "line" between
running in any house to the point of blowing everyone's 20 amp breaker.
