Abstract

This paper consists of an experimental and analytical characterisation of the electromagnetic environment in the medium surrounding a circuit of two 220-Kv power lines running in parallel. The analysis presented is divided into two main parts. The first part concerns an experimental study of the behaviour of the electric and magnetic fields generated by the selected double-circuit at ground level (0 m). While the second part simulates and calculates the field profiles generated by both the lines at different levels above the ground, from 0 m to the level close to the line conductors at 20 m above the ground, using the electrostatic and magnetostatic modules of the COMSOL multi-physics software. The implications of the results are discussed and compared with the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection reference levels for occupational and non-occupational exposures.


Keywords: High-voltage power lines, low-frequency electromagnetic fields, finite element method, electromagnetic compatibility, inductive and capacitive coupling, standards.
