During the 2013-2017 phase of the BBEMG research program, the ACE group from the University of Liège has developed an easy-to-use software application to evaluate ELF fields near common ELF sources, in particular near power lines and underground cables. Based on the open source packages GetDP, Gmsh and ONELAB, the application provides an intuitive graphical interface for interactive parameter modification and result exploration. The application is available for both desktop computers running Windows, MacOS and Linux, and for mobile devices running iOS and Android. Three fully parametric models are included: a two-dimensional model of underground cables, a simplified two-dimensional model of overhead power lines, and a full three-dimensional model of overhead power lines.
