This paper describes the various devices which are used in the corrosion control of underground power cables. Many of these devices have been used for a long time but the present paper describes a number of useful improvements in such devices as the electrolysis switch, the test current interrupter, and the cathodic protection and forced drainage rectifiers. The use of silicon power rectifier as an electrolysis switch is described. A method of grounding and corrosion protection of a pipe cable system is also outlined.
