impressed current anodes

1. n. [Enhanced Oil Recovery]
Materials to provide cathodic protection. Impressed current anodes are relatively inert to corrosion and require an external power source to generate the electric current that will bring cathodic protection to the structure. Impressed current systems are used mainly when the current required for cathodic protection is large.
