Artificial magnetic fields are unavoidable features of offshore wind farms in natural geomagnetic field environments. The movement of the wind over the blades makes them rotate and a connected shaft powers a generator to convert the energy into electricity. This electricity is transmitted by cables over long distances. Operating electric currents always produce magnetic fields, which are essentially dipolar in nature, having a north and a south magnetic pole. The magnetic field lines of a… CONTINUE READING
