Expansion has increased the risk of AC in pipelines. In this work, calculations of induced AC voltage and current are performed for scenarios involving: HVAC transmission powerline configuration, lateral distance to the transmission pipeline, and parallelism between the transmission lines, soil, and pipeline and coating properties.
Calcium bromide is used in the coal fire power plant industry to help control mercury emissions. The objective of this study was to determine the effect of bromide additions in chloride-rich Wet Flue Gas Desulfurization slurries on the crevice corrosion resistance of commercially-available corrosion resistant alloys.
Service and design life estimates are converging for many transmission and distribution assets. This report provides an approach to understanding the significance of reject and ranking criteria and how they may become a barrier to good asset management or a path to improving system reliability and grid resiliency.
