The electromagnetic fields in substations due to the high currents and high voltages produce different effects on people and objects nearby. High levels of permanent magnetic or electric fields have impacts on the health of people exposed to them. Legislation specify the maximum values not to be exceeded.
This text is based on the T.R. Cognitor 76 / 2016 - Magnetic & Electric Fields in Substations & Neighborhood (Mapping for health legislation and EMC problems). The objective is to show how to calculate the values of fields. It is also presented a step-by-step description on how to use SwitchgearDesign to the mapping of magnetic and electric fields in complete substations, switchgear, AIS, GIS, etc.
