Abstract

The air core reactor is used to limit the electrical network short circuit current. Magnetic field of reactor can reach the values dangerous to human. It is important to know the distribution of magnetic field in reactor surroundings and especially in perpendicular to reactor axis plane which height is 1,8 m (level of the human head). The magnetic field in surroundings of reactor can be calculated when the distribution of magnetic field on reactor axis is known. The field strength on reactor axis can be calculated by Biot-Savart-Laplace law. Ill. 9, bibl. 3 (in English; summaries in English, Russian and Lithuanian).
