AFAIK, comma is used when the phrase/clause/element is non-essential.
It will be good if you can give some examples.

here is an example
The growth of the railroads led to the abolition of local times, which was determined by when the sun reached the observer's meridian and differing from city to city, and to the establishment of regional times.
In this case, how does comma change the meaning?
