Abstract: Traditional extremely low frequency (ELF) magnetic field computation techniques assume that the current carrying power line conductors are straight horizontal wires. This assumption results in a model whose magnetic fields are distorted from those produced in reality.An exact solution and an approximation are proposed for modeling magnetic fields produced by the sagged conductors of power lines, by taking advantage of the fact that the equation of the catenary exactly describes the line sag. The proposed appr…
