Screen taps are a way of connecting pentodes (tetrodes?) such that
they have a characteristic between pentode (tetrode?) and triode mode
performance and generally valves designed for it work best configured
this way, in terms of a combination of power output and distortion.

They have no relevance for triodes, or triode connected pentodes/tetrodes.

rgds, sreten.
