A simulation software for the cathodic protection (CP) of underground pipeline networks is presented. In this paper, the software will be applied to two different cases. The first concerns the design of the cathodic protection of a 55 km pipeline section. The second is the evaluation of an existing pipeline network in the north-west of The Netherlands.
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.
