The investigations referred to later in this paper were begun by the authors early in the summer of 1908 and covered a period of from eight to ten weeks. The system of the United Electric Light & Power Company, of New York City, seemed particularly desirable for this class of investigation, as it is the largest alternating-current light and power system that is entirely underground and therefore subject to the particular class of phenomena treated by the paper; moreover, it is without the variations that might be encountered in a system having a part of its lines overhead.
