Abstract: The health impacts on people exposed to power line generated magnetic fields remains somewhat controversial. Under certain circumstances, such extremely low frequency (ELF) magnetic fields also arise in high-rise buildings in Hong Kong, causing interference with sensitive equipment, and with it concerns about the potential health impacts on affected persons. Due to a general lack of awareness electrical design and installation engineers rarely consider the issue, This paper discusses the problem of ELF fields generated by a building's electrical distribution system, and provides simplified analytical techniques that lead to practical solutions for eliminating interference problems as well as reducing concerns about health impacts.
