Full-Wave. In a rectifier, the production of pulsating direct current from
both the positive and negative portions of the alternating current input. See
Galvanic. Pertaining to the electrochemical interaction between two metals
such as in galvanic couple or galvanic series.
Galvanic Anode. A metal which, because of its relative position in the
galvanic series, provides sacrificial protection to metal or metals that are
more noble in the series, when coupled in an electrolyte. The anodes are the
current source in one type of cathodic protection.
Groundbed. An array of anodes, usually impressed current type, used in a
cathodic protection system.
Half-Wave. In a rectifier, the production of pulsating direct current from
only the positive or negative portion of the alternating current input. See
HMWPE. High molecular weight polethylene.
A high performance insulating
material used for electrical cables.
HSCBCI. High silicon-chromium bearing cast iron. A material used as an
impressed current cathodic protection system anode.
An electrically charged atom or molecule.
A measurement of electrical power consumption.
A form of iron oxide.
Sometimes used for an impressed current
A thick coating or sealing material.
A mho is a reciprocal

One thousandth of an ampere.
A measurement of electric current.
One thousandth of a volt, a measurement of electric
