The galvanic system and the impressed current system of cathodic protection are described. Application for cathodic protection include protection of underground utilities and protection of the interiors of above-ground structures. In complex structures such as tank farms, one structure may shield another, in which case distributed anodes may solve the problem. Bonds may be necessary to avoid stray current damage.
