A Review of EPRI Projects Since 1984 that Used Electrochemical Noise Measurement Instrumentation


This review paper documents the development of a modern approach to online corrosion evaluation: the origins of the approach, configuring multiple techniques to maximize data retrieval, and taking the instrumentation out of the laboratory and into the field. Several Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) projects conducted over the past decade have used this approach. This paper describes how with the use of modern corrosion surveillance instrumentation the objectives of each of these EPRI projects were achieved and an appropriate corrosion management strategy was developed. The final section includes a discussion of the future of corrosion management systems, and their relation to, and dependence on, electrochemical noise (EN) instrumentation.
