" The commissioning of electrical plant covers a very wide area of the Electrical engineering field, and thus necessitates a thorough understanding of many practical and theoretical considerations. The behaviour of machines and apparatus, when put into commission for the first time, cannot completely be forecast, and although careful when you are checking and preparation of plans will usually result in trouble-free performance, the obtaining of the initial operating characteristics will in many respects provide the most important guide to successful performance and life. Possible troubles may thereby be anticipated and the appropriate remedies applied. " -- from the author's preface page IX.
