Research and Assessment of Safety Distance of TV Electromagnetic Fields
"International Journal of Occupational Safety and Ergonomics" 1/2011, p. 33-39
The evaluation covers the strengths of electric field and magnetic flux denstiy measured in frequency ranges of 5 Hz–2 kHz and 2–400 kHz of selected TV sets. The dependence of the electromagnetic field on the distance is addressed with reference to ergonomics and safety. Ten TV sets (5 tube and 5 LCD) were measured. There were 16 measurements for each one. The aim was to evaluate electric field and magnetic flux denstiy versus the distance from the tested device with regard to exposure levels. In addition, the distance and the strengths of electric field and magnetic flux denstiy emitted by tube and LCD TVs were compared. The results are presented in charts.
Electromagnetic Action of Heavy-Current Equipment Operating With Power Frequency
"International Journal of Occupational Safety and Ergonomics" 3/2010, p. 357-368
The paper presents an analysis of the effect of magnetic fields of power frequency generated by heavy-current electric equipment on the environment. The results of computation and measurements of the magnetic field in the vicinity of power busducts are included. Possible hazards are considered that result from the effects of the magnetic field on workers present in the vicinity of busducts as well as secondary hazards caused by the degrading effect of the magnetic field on ferromagnetic structural materials (in reinforced concrete structures). Attention is given to an ergonomic aspect of interaction of the magnetic field with cathode ray tube computer monitors (annoying oscillation of the image).
