This research endeavors to create the 50Hz electromagnetic field atlas for
populated urban areas in the city of Baghdad (Iraq). For this purpose, the 3-
dimensions numerical model based on finite element method (FEM) with time
harmonic system is used for simulated and modeling electric and magnetic fields
surrounding the 132kV transmission system. The calculated magnetic and electric
field levels are compared to exposure guidelines given by International Commission
on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP). To assign the dangers regions in the
city, the properties of the Geographical Information System (GIS) were used. The
GIS map highlighted visually the unsafe zones and facilitate the extraction of the
electric and magnetic field levels of exposure.
