The Development of Housing Near High Voltage Overhead Lines in Urban Areas

Warianty tytułu
Języki publikacji
Purpose: The progressing urbanisation of cities makes it necessary to develop larger areas of land for housing development both in urban areas and on the outskirts of cities. This often results in housing developments inevitably approaching high-voltage power lines built several years ago. The purpose of this article is an overview of the guidelines in force in Poland and selected countries around the world regarding the possibilities of housing development in the vicinity of high-voltage power lines, whose presence is accompanied by electromagnetic fields. International recommendations in this field are also presented. In addition, calculated values of magnetic field strength from a typical 400 kV overhead line in Poland as a function of distance from residential buildings are discussed.
Method: A systematic review and theoretical modelling of electromagnetic field distributions.
Findings: Based on the research, the author confirmed the research hypothesis that there are not international standards and guidelines regulating the distance between power lines and residential development.
Research implications: The presented research is part of research on the power infrastructure in the economic, social and environmental aspect. (original abstract)
