Efficiency of the Missouri School of Mines power plant and cost of a kilowatt hour as made
"These tests were made for the purpose of getting the efficiency of the electric power plant as it was being run and the cost of operating it. Tests were first made on the boilers separately. The load at the time of the test was too heavy for one boiler and too light for tow, part of the steam being used for heating the buildings and for the air-compressor. This made it so that no combined test of the boilers and generating couple could be made until the warm weather came and the laboratories using compressed air were closed, which was too late in the year for the complete test on a medium load. The load varied somewhat so that the tests were not as good as could be made on a full constant load. These tests therefore represent what the plant is doing, not what it could do. This should be born in mind while comparing these results with others as they represent the efficiency and cost of operating the plant as it is run"--page 1.
