Abstract

Adverse health effects due to magnetic fields is a matter of great concern and has been widely debated in recent years. Managing these fields is a challenge to researchers. One of the important sources of magnetic fields is power cables. Different management techniques have been studied. In this paper, passive shielding schemes are implemented to manage the magnetic fields of power cables. The various shielding schemes can be separated into two broad categories: shielding subject and shielding source. Both schemes are implemented in this paper. Passive shielding schemes are found to be the most powerful technique as the reductions obtained are sometimes as high as 97-98%. This scheme is a costly one, should be used only in assigned locations, and as such, there has to be a trade-off between the cost and the level for reduction desired and the health desired and the health hazards.
