Creeping error: It is defined as the slow and continuous rotation of the disc of the energy-meter when only pressure coil is energized with no current in the current coil (load current = 0). In order to prevent the creeping on no load, two holes are drilled in the disc on diametrically opposite sides of the spindle. This causes sufficient distortion of the field to prevent rotation of the disc when one of the holes comes under the pole of shunt magnet. Also in other case, small piece of iron wire is attached to the edge of the disc. The force of attraction is exerted by the brake magnet on this iron wire is sufficient to prevent continues rotation of the disc on no load condition.
