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.
Close proximity of high voltage lines and metallic pipelines becomes more frequent. This paper presents a recently developed simulation software to facilitate prediction and mitigation. Flexible (no limitation on number of pipes, transmission lines, bonds, groundings, coating and soil resistivity), user-friendly and robust.
