1. The shorted turns do note overheat because there is no real change in resistance, it is still the resistance of the short length of wir.
2. Switching the taps on the inductor will not change the overall inductance of the wire. Shorting out the turns actually reduces
the number of turns, or unwinds them without the physical act of unwinding. The number of turns is critical for inductance, changing
the tap point does not change the inductors value.
