According to the conclusions previously obtained, the low- For low-reactance lines with equal current in magnitude and field configurations are the low reactance and the armless phase the resultant field lays ones. We can also observe that in the conventional crossarm constructions the better behaviour of delta configuration is compensated by the higher phase-phase distance.

For the 2-wire one-phase system a similar behaviour is (4) observed. The negative effect of ground return current is explained observing eq. (4). An unbalanced system with From (1..4) relevant conclusions can be deduced: ground return can be decomposed into several current dipoles [5] (MF decay as 1/r2 ) and a homopolar component The MF generated by power lines is proportional to current (MF decay as 1/r) whose effect will be dominant at certain and distance between conductors distance from the line.

  8. Cired JTF C4-04-02 and focuses mainly on the use of aluminium shields, which have been applied on an important 150 kV link in Belgium. General field mitigating techniques The reduction of ELF magnetic fields produced by power cables can become an important concern due to the fact that they are sometimes laid very close to inhabited areas. As for overhead lines, the magnetic field due to underground cables is inversely proportional to the distance between Air-gaps in the sheet corners conductors. Therefore the easiest mitigation technique remains, of course, to install the cables in a trefoil arrangement. However, when a very high load capacity is required, it is not always possible to install the cables in trefoil. Horizontal layouts with distances of several tens of cm between conductors are sometimes needed. In that case the magnetic field strength above the conductors, at ground level, can be higher than that produced by an equivalent overhead line and can require some mitigation method. Effects of air-gaps in sheet corners Figure 1 shows, for both arrangements, and for three U-shaped screen FEM/BEM model different measurement positions above ground the decrease of the field with the distance to the axis of the cable layout. In both cases, the cables are buried at a depth of 120 cm, have a diameter of 10 cm and are carrying a current of 1 kA.

  9. As stated in [ 0] to [ 0], ferromagnetic material as well as good conducting material are used. At low frequencies the physical mechanisms involved by both materials are completely different: In the first case (figure 2 b), sometimes called magnetostatic shielding, the field lines are absorbed by the low reluctance material, whereas in the second case (figure 2 c) they are repelled thanks to the eddy currents induced in the material. Figure 2: Shielding mechanisms: ferromagnetic material versus conductive material Shielding by ferromagnetic materials. Although theoretically more efficient at low frequency than conductive materials, ferromagnetic materials seem, in most Figure 3: Shielding by ferromagnetic material cases, to be less advantageous. The reasons are the following : Shielding by conductive materials. The effectiveness of conductive shields is more homogeneous in the space. Ferromagnetic materials are As far as conductive materials are concerned, two materials mainly effective nearby the shield, while conductive can be considered: copper and aluminium. materials are also effective at distance. Both materials have their own advantages and drawbacks: Good ferromagnetic materials like permalloy (“Mumetal”) Copper has a higher conductivity but also a higher cost than or transformer laminates are often expensive and highly aluminium. Although copper is easier to weld than sensitive to corrosion. Therefore they need a good protection aluminium, modern welding techniques under argon coating. atmosphere allow assembling aluminium plates on the yard. Ferromagnetic materials are more efficient when the Therefore, in the following sections, only shielding by magnetic circuit they offer to the flux lines is closed (no or aluminium plates will be considered. few gap). This particular layout is not often practically On the other hand, if some precautions are taken concerning achievable unless for shielding short cable lengths. the neutrality of the soil, corrosion problems should not arise neither with copper nor with aluminium. The possible Hence, the main example where a ferromagnetic shielding influence of stray currents needs however to be addressed. seems to be superior to a conductive one is the steel tube. In this case a shielding factor up to 50 can be achieved as Three main layouts will be taken into consideration: the flat shown in figure 3 taken from [ 0]. horizontal shield or plane shield, the U-shaped shield and the H-shaped shield. However, such a tubular shielding has also drawbacks: The maintenance or the repair of the cables is difficult. The Plane shield thermal behaviour of the cables is neither easy to manage, as the tube needs normally to be filled with concrete. A relatively simple way to mitigate the field produced by a 2 or 3 phases cable system is to install as close as possible On the other hand, the installation of a single tube allows a above the cable an horizontal plate. fast recovering of the trench, the cables being pulled-in by a Shield thickness single and fast operation afterwards. 2 mm plates give already fair results but the effectiveness clearly increases with the thickness as far as this latter remains smaller than the skin effect (about 12 mm for aluminium and 9 mm for copper). Shield width The main problem with plane shields is that the shielding effectiveness usually strongly decreases with the distance to the centre of the plate with, as result, that the shielded field presents two peaks in the vicinity of the edges of the plate. CIRED 2003 - Special Report Session 2 - Power Quality & EMC 9/31
  10. To avoid this it is necessary to use a plate with a sufficient U-shaped shield width. Practically it is recommended that the ratio of the shield It has been very often written that a U-shape shield exhibits width to its distance to the conductors and to the distance better performances than a flat shield. In fact, as shown in between conductors remains larger than 4. For a maximum [ 0], for the same shielding area, it has not really a better effectiveness the plates need to be as close as possible to the effectiveness than a horizontal plane shield but it doesn’t cables but, if they are too close, the losses due to the induced necessitate to groove such a large trench as that required for eddy currents can become to high. Power capacity, however, an horizontal shield of the same total width before bending. is practically not influenced if the distance between cable One problem, however with U-shaped shields is that, sheets and shielding is not smaller than 5 to 7 cm [ 0]. contrary to what happens with plane shields, there is an Shield continuity absolute need to get a good contact between the vertical For manufacturing reasons, the shield is normally divided parts of each shielding element (assuming, of course, a non into smaller elements placed near each other with or without continuous shield). air gaps. It can been shown [ 0] that the shielding continuity between the different elements is not absolutely necessary. The presence of gaps reduces in fact the eddy currents and the global shield effectiveness, but this effect decreases with the observation distance. On the contrary, near the boundaries of the gaps, due to the fact that the eddy currents are flowing in opposite direction, there is a strong enhancement of the field that behaves a little bit like as a compressed fluid leaking through the gaps. A good way to avoid this enhancement and to approach the theoretical result achieved with a continuous shield is to use a double layer of metallic plates, each layer being shifted by half the length of one plate with respect to the other layer, like the bricks of a wall. In that case the resulting effectiveness is close to that of a single Figure 5: Shielding by U-shaped conductive plates continuous shield with the same global thickness. It is important to note, here, that the quality of the electrical Nevertheless with a layout based on 2 mm aluminium plates contact between layers doesn’t play any part in the shielding of 100 cm (length) x 200 cm (width) bended to achieve effectiveness. vertical parts of 40 cm and bolded together in the Performances longitudinal direction, a shielding factor of 4 can be Figure 4 shows the comparison between calculation (2 D achieved up to 1.5 m above the shield.

The agreement is quite good although the calculation Another problem with U-shaped shields is the difficulty of refers to a 6 mm continue shield (99.5 % aluminium), installation. whereas the measurements are made on a double layer 3 mm For cooling reasons, power cables need to be embedded in a discontinue shield. controlled soil (dolomie…) that needs to be tamped.

  11. Therefore, the electrical circuit formed by the vertical plates H-shaped shielding 100 cm width, 3 mm Al plates of 80 cm X 200 cm, needs to be closed at each extremity of the shielded area. Cables axis at 24 cm from trench bottom, 25 cm between conductors Horizontal plates at 16 cm above cables axis It has also been shown experimentally, at least for the flat Measurement distances from trench bottom cable configuration, that the longitudinal continuity of the 16 horizontal plates is not very important. 14 Shield thickness 12 Calculations show that increasing the shield thickness above shielding factor 10 150 cm 3 mm does not bring a important improvement in the 8 250 cm shielding effectiveness. On the other hand, for mechanical 6 300 cm and corrosion withstand reasons, it is not safe to use too thin 4 shields. Hence, the value of 3 mm seems to be a master 2 choice for this type of aluminium shielding. 0 -400 -300 -200 -100 0 100 200 300 400 Shielding effectiveness horizontal distance to cable central conductor (cm) Shielding factors up to 10 at 1.5 m above ground have been calculated with the same 2D model as for the plane shield.

  14. effects of these fields. On the other hand PFMFs have the ability to interfere with electron-beam devices, which contributes to the awareness as regards EMC regulations. These two issues have induced efforts to study ways to mitigate these fields. Secondary substations represent the final stages of the electrical delivery system before reaching the customers. In Sweden and in other European countries it is not unusual, especially in neighbourhoods with a dense population, to locate secondary substations inside buildings (e.g. in cellars). Secondary substations are three-phase systems composed mainly of: transformers (10 kV/0.4 kV), cables, and switchboards containing busbars. As the voltage decreases the current and consequently the magnetic field increases. Unlike power lines or underground cables, the magnetic field originating from a secondary substation is rather complex as it corresponds to an intricate superposition of fields from various sources. Thus, in order to find out a cost- effective way to mitigate this type of field, a variety of techniques have to be explored. E. Salinas (GB/SE), Field Mitigation from Secondary Substations (South Bank University, London, and Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Fig. 1.1 Some typical magnetic field values (in microtesla) from a secondary substation situated in a cellar of a building. A usual configuration of major sources and distances is also shown. Summary 2. Strategy, Techniques and Methods This work aims to design cost-effective schemes for the mitigation of magnetic fields from secondary substations According to the Webster’s Encyclopedic Dictionary, and integrated solutions for larger systems. The most strategy is “the art of devising or employing plans or frequently adopted strategy consists of dealing with the stratagems to achieve a goal”. In the case of magnetic field mitigation operation at the origin of the field emission. The mitigation the goal is to search for cost-effective solutions. techniques applied are shielding, active compensation, and Independently of the technique to be used, there are two phase cancellation. Analytical, numerical (finite-element- possible strategies to follow. We can choose to apply the based), and experimental methods are used and improved for mitigation operation at the victim or to apply it at the the analysis of the electromagnetic fields.

  15. As the field propagates along a distance it becomes weaker. Accordingly the area to deal with expands with a quadratic dependence on that distance. Fig. 2.1 Mitigating the field at the source is in most cases more cost-effective than mitigate at the victim. To investigate the field at an affected region it is customary to measure the field on a certain plane (usually the floor level) in that region and plot the results in a contour plot. It Fig. 3.1 Some of the complexities inherent to the use of finite/open shields. is then natural to ask: is it possible to discriminate in advance the magnitude of the contribution of each source by scanning the field values in the affected area? The answer is The field from busbars can be shielded by means of thin yes. There are two reasons for this: (1) analysis of the field conductive plates located in front of the busbars. The gradient on the scanned surface could suggest the possible induced eddy currents reduce the magnetic field in the far source behavior; (2) analysis of the variation of the field zone. Acceptable shielding efficiency is possible even when values with the distance perpendicular to the scanned the conducting shield is thinner than a skin depth. In cases surface could provide a 3-dimensional picture of the field when the shield does not form a closed surface, conducting decay, and subsequent source identification. Moreover, after shields are generally more efficient than ferromagnetic a simple inspection of the substation itself the problem can shields. This is in apparent contradiction with the concept of be resolved, and a mitigation technique can be suggested. skin effect, which gives for iron (σ = 1.07x107⋅ Sm-1, and ∝r = 250) a skin depth In secondary substations the techniques chosen to mitigate δ = (π f ∝0 ∝r σ)-1/2 ~ 0.14cm, the magnetic field depend upon the characteristics of the almost an order of magnitude less than for aluminium – sources. Busbars, transformers and cables are the sources consequently better efficiency would be expected. In fact the most often encountered in a substation and possible latter is correct right at the other side of the ferromagnetic techniques to apply are: phase cancellation, conductive and screen, where strong reduction is observed. However, at the ferromagnetic shielding, passive and active compensation. victim zone (about 4 m over the system) both properties of The methods used to carry out the mitigation techniques are iron, conductivity and magnetic permeability, manifest their analytical computations (e.g. using symbolic manipulation antagonism. As the first tries to cancel the field, the other codes), numerical modeling, e.g. finite element methods tries to attract the field lines. In fact, some of the field lines (FEM), and experimental setups. are pulled into the region where we want to mitigate the field. Using double-layer shielding, it was observed that the 3.

They are usually made of copper or aluminium covered by copper and should be able to withstand current values having several hundreds of amperes. Depending on their specific design they can have different lengths, geometrical arrangements, and cross sections. A typical system of busbars, where a shielding technique is being applied, is shown in Fig. 3.1. The complexity of the problem when the arrangement is modelled by numerical methods, such as finite elements (FEM), is evident when finite/open shields are utilized. Fig. 3.2 Double shield arrangement in front of a source, the field resultant of the permutation Iron-Aluminium is shown.

  16. trying to imitate the behaviour of these currents. This can be achieved by passive compensation e.g. adding two rectangular short-circuited loops in front of the busbars. This was attempted with a system of square-shaped coils (N = 60 turns) but there was almost no attenuation, presumably the currents were two small to induce any field-counteracting effect. When the attempt was made with only N = 1, and thicker conductor, there was some non-negligible effect, although this occurred when the loops were placed very Fig. 4.2 Reduction of the magnetic field from a 3-phase transformer by phase rearrangement at the close (less than 1 cm) to the busbars. secondary side is a cost-effective mitigation method.

A substation was study, where measured field Extra considerations have to be taken in order to avoid values were as high as 22 microtesla, right above the hindrances such as heating and mechanical stresses due to transformer on the next floor. The transformer was located eddy currents and induced forces. about 2 m below the measuring points; consequently the values were too high to be inherently originated from this source alone. An inspection of the interior of the substation made clear that the field was due to ill connections and poor field self-cancellation (Fig. 4.1-a). The solution adopted was to keep the phases mixed up to the point of connections with the transformer (Fig. 4.1-b). This solution provides a fairly good mitigation (17-18 dB), however it still leaves a residual field of around 3 microtesla. Additional mitigation is possible and various actions can be recommended, e.g. to change the paths of the connections to the ground level. Shielding the transformer with an aluminium metal box, which takes care of the remaining fields, can also be a complementary measure.

  17. 6. Example Here a study is presented of magnetic fields originating from a secondary substation placed in the cellar of the Gothenburg City Library. This public library is located in the centre of Gothenburg and is surrounded by other public and urban buildings. About 190 persons work in this building and it receives around 3,000 visits each day. The electricity supply to the library and nearby public buildings consists of a secondary 10/0.4 kV substation (two 800 kVA, three phase transformers). Rather high magnetic field values (Fig. 6.1-a) were registered at the floor above the substation and these field values propagated over a rather extended area outside the (a) substation. Stray currents were discovered to be the cause of the anomaly. Various mitigation operations were carried out, taking advantage of renovation procedures. Among them, phase cancellation via cable management, shielding of busbars, replacements by low emission transformers, as well as laminated-ferromagnetic field reducers for cancellation of stray currents, were used. The final field values (Fig. 6.1-c) were reduced in average to acceptable sub-microtesla levels. (b) (c) Fig. 6.1 The magnetic field one floor above the library and its reduction at different stages. 7. Conclusion Given a source, belonging to a substation, which is producing relatively high magnetic field values (e.g. in excess of the microtesla level) on a certain area of interest, this report has shown various possible ways to mitigate these values. The emphasis was to use simple and costeffective methods. For this reason it was preferable to apply the mitigation to take place at the sources instead of dealing with shielding of the affected areas. Various techniques were applied according to the specific characteristics of each source. Table 7.1 shows the different CIRED 2003 - Special Report Session 2 - Power Quality & EMC 17/31
