Summary:
This thesis is concerned with the measurement of magnetic field components induced above the earth's surface by three classes of high-voltage power transmission lines supplemented by algorithmic formulations: The first system refers to three-phase lines housed in a plastic (PVC) conduit, buried directly in the soil or encased in a concrete duct. The second category refers to a similar buried system, but encased in an iron/steel pipe. The third transmission line is an overhead three-phase system. Using boundary-value approach, approximate (closed-form) expressions are obtained for the magnetic field above the earth's surface caused by each of the systems indicated. Calculated results are compared with experimental data compiled from field experiments.
