Gerald’s case study on 'Unmasking AC threats on petrochemical pipelines' involves a 27-mile petrochemical pipeline collocating with seven (7) High Voltage AC (HVAC) powerlines, that was subjected to AC corrosion. The paper discusses an innovative twin technology approach whereby a novel power line monitoring device records both the current load and powerline phasing.
