This paper deals with human exposure to extremely low frequency (ELF) electric fields generated by a transformer substation. The problem is twofold, i.e. it implies the assessment of the power substation electric field and the related current density induced inside the human body. The ELF electric field generated from a power substation is determined by solving the Scalar Potential Integral Equation (SPIE) using the Source Element Method (SEM), a variant of the Indirect Boundary Element Method
