An improved form of the corona voltmeter is described. Precision measurements of crest values of high alternating voltage taken in the high-tension circuit are compared with the indications of the corona voltmeter. The law of corona has been determined to a higher degree of accuracy, and a modification in the form of the law as heretofore accepted is revealed. As based on the precision voltage measurements the corona voltmeter is proposed as a natural secondary standard of high voltages. Its advantages as a standard, and its practical operation are described.
