The Impact of AC Mitigation Criteria on CP System Design and Operation

The operation of CP systems is dictated by the amount of current required to polarize the pipeline. Since 2018, DC current density has been a key parameter in operating cathodic protection systems.

If the system’s DC current density is not monitored and controlled, AC mitigation criteria become very strict.
