Underground Conductor Electromagnetic Fields

Electromagnetic Field Intensity Evaluation
The magnetic field exposure analysis tool is integrated with the underground cable systems (UGS) analysis module, and it determines the worst-case magnetic fields produced by conductors in underground raceways. The tool handles various 3-phase conductor layouts including flat and trefoil as well 1/C and 3/C 1-phase cables, dc cables, etc. The tool uses balanced & unbalanced load-flow currents and angles to determine the location and surface-level height of the worst-case magnetic field because of all conductors in the raceway.

 

Key Features

  • Based on CIGRE JTF 36-0121
  • Exposure to Surface Magnetic Fields from Underground Conductor Installations
  • Evaluate Field Intensity Limits per IEEE C95.6-2002,
    ICNIRP – 2010 & ACGIH – 2002
  • Consider 3/C, 1/C, 3-P and 1-P AC & DC Conductor Currents 
  • Automatic filtering of Ferromagnetic Conduits
  • User-Defined Permeability CF
  • Validated against actual site measured magnetic fields
