The paper deals with human exposure to extremely low frequency (ELF) electric fields generated by transformer substation. The problem is twofold, i.e. it requires the calculation of power substation electric field and current density induced inside the human body. ELF electric field generated from a power substation is assessed by solving the Scalar Potential Integral Equation (SPIE) using the Source Element Method (SEM), a variant of the Indirect Boundary Element Method (IBEM). Knowing the electric field due to the substation the current density induced within the human being exposed to such field is obtained by solving the Laplace equation variant of the continuity equation using the direct Boundary Element Method with domain decomposition (BEM-DM). Some illustrative computational results for external electric field and internal current density are presented.
