Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Magnetic fields produced by both small and large apparatus are being investigated for their possible relation to human health effects. A number of studies have been done in characterizing the magnetic field generated by transmission lines, household wiring and appliances. Two other major sources of magnetic fields are motors and transformers. The magnetic field generated by power transformers has not been studied extensively. The purpose of this paper is to experimentally quantify the magnetic field of a power transformer and compare it with calculated results obtained using one of the numerical techniques.
