Corrosion protection.

Being one of the popular methods over decades, the utilization of the cathodic protection system is proven to be cost-effective in some cases but demands constant observation and monitoring of the corrosion status. Therefore, adaptive corrosion protection system (ACPS) performs better since It always monitors the corrosion status at user-defined intervals and the ACPS adapts the changes of the target metal structure to provide protection against corrosion. In this project, my role is to understand the theoretical concept and a practical case study of the protection system behaviour including the analysis and improvement of the experimental performances. The project works are evolved around three different sections of the ACPS which are firmware, interface and hardware. The optimum goal is to validate the protection system to be more robust, energy efficient and compatible for any kind of future integration.
