CedratMon, 2 Nov 2015

Different applications now need to evaluate the capacitive behaviours of their devices. Power modules, for instance, are now working at high frequencies and a capacitive behaviour appears in addition to the resistive-inductive aspects. Unfortunately these effects may have undesirable effects on the devices and generate additional losses. In order to observe and analyse these effects, the value of the capacitances between each conductor has to be computed. From electrostatic computations ...

Impressed Current Cathodic Protection systems are a common technology used to prevent corrosion in steel and reinforced concrete structures. These systems are designed to operate for decades, in line with the expected life of the asset. But keeping the assurance that your valuable assets are indeed protected from corrosion over the long term is an expensive exercise. This paper explores the benefits and savings that can be achieved with modern remote monitoring technologies.
