Access from EThOS:
Switching operations within high voltage substations will radiate transient electromagnetic fields. This was not a problem for electromechanical devices found within the substations. However, with the introduction of new technology equipment (microelectronics) into the substations for measurement, communication, protection and control purposes, there is a growing concern that radiated fields due to switching could cause interference to the normal operation of electronic equipment. This could lead to complete system disturbances and ultimately complete blackout. There is therefore the need to quantity the magnitude of radiated fields within the substation environment.
