The purpose for which the tests hereinafter described were undertaken was the experimental study of "static effects," on full-sized commercial systems, the method used being the isolation of the various sorts of phenomena and the elimination of disturbing influences. It was hoped that by a study of the effects of simple fundamental causes on commercial plants the understanding and control of the more complex static disturbances met with in actual experience would be much facilitated.
