Electrochemical corrosion

  1. Jan 23, 2008 #1
    According to some technical recommendation, we must be concerned about metal under ground structures (e.g. pipe lines) corrosion in neighbor of power transmission lines.
    Sinusoidal high current elements can produce eddy induced currents in their surroundings .The eddy currents in electrical path around of power lines are AC type inherently. On the other hand, according to electrochemical fundamental laws, the AC induced current can not be caused any oxidation or corrosion effects.
    How can you explain the reason of that recommendation?


    Creative thinking is enjoyable,Then think about your surrounding things and other thought products. http://electrical-riddles.com
