# New Earth Potential Equation & Application II by Rogelio de Ias Casas

The distance between the groundbed and protected structure should be considered during the
design of a cathodic protection system. This distance is determined using the ratio between
the potential change in the earth due to the groundbed (buried electrodes) and the groundbed
potential to remote earth. The potential equations presented here work for groundbeds with
any number of anodes, either vertical or horizontal, and work for groundbeds with varied anode
spacing. These equations provide, in a first approximation, a method to calculate the
groundbed’s area of influence, aiding in the determination of optimum groundbed location.

New Earth PotentialEquations and ApplicationsII
Rogelio de las Casas

Introduction
Cathodic Protection System Design
Determine ideal distance between groundbed and protectedstructure
The optimization of the groundbed location improve the CPsystem efficiency
Predict the optimum distance of groundbed from foreign linestructures
Calculate the amount of interference current on foreignstructures.
Potential to remote earth of any amount or anodeconfiguration can be determine.
Linear current density on pipelines in function of groundbeddistance from pipeline.

Use of New Potential Equations inCathodic Protection System Design
Permit determine Remote Earth distance:
Point where the anode’s potential influence on the earthsurface is not longer observed.
Can be used for Groundbeds Installed Either Close Toor Remote From the Structure
Close groundbeds concentrate current on a small area of thestructure
Remote groundbeds protect a larger area of the structure withless concentrated current
Optimal placement distance from the structure is calculatedfor remote and distribute groundbeds.
Permit determine Influence on Foreign Structures;(Interference by stray current)
