Over the past several decades, concerns have been raised over the possibility that the exposure to extremely low frequency electromagnetic fields from power lines may have harmful effects on human and living organisms. This work involved the computation of the magnetic field generated by 110 kV overhead power lines using a normalized radial basis function (NRBF) network. Training of the evolving NRBF network is achieved by using the data generated from the numerical simulation based on Charge Simulation method (CSM). Then, NRBF has been used to determine the magnetic field distribution in a new geometry differing from the geometries used for training. These test results show that proposed NRBF network can be used as useful tool to calculate the magnetic fields from power lines, alternative to the conventional methods.
