The report contains measured data on electric field strengths near ground level under 765 kV and 510 kV single circuit and 345 kV double circuit overhead power transmission lines, values of short circuit current originating on vehicles situated in relatively intense electric fields, and estimates of perception and annoyance for humans resulting from transient spark discharge. Calculated data is given for the electric field strength beneath 765 kV single circuit, 500 kV single circuit, and 345 kV single and double circuit lines.
"April 1977." "EPA-520/2-76-008"--Cover. "The method used to calculate electric field strengths in this report is one developed by Mr. John Walker of the Bonneville Power Administration, Portland, Oregon."--Page 2. Includes bibliographical references.
