Cathodic protection (CP) is a technique used to control the corrosion of a metal surface. Impressed current systems utilize an external power source that provides protective current to mitigate corrosion activity. Permanently installed anodes and the embedded reinforcing steel are connected to an AC/DC rectifier that forces the steel to a cathodic or protective condition. Impressed current systems provide a high level of protection but should be properly monitored and maintained to ensure long-t... [More]
