Abstract: Due to the population explosion of the world, towns are expanding, many building construct high voltage overhead power transmission lines. Because of power demand we need huge amount of power for over long distances. Large transmission lines configurations with high voltage and current level generates large value of electric and magnetic fields stresses which affect the human being and the nearby objects located at ground surfaces. But medical studies have shown that a low frequency EM field accelerates the healing of bone fractures. The non ionizing radiation causes the health effects in human which is low frequency electromagnetic fields which is produced by the electricity systems. This is not affect only the human ,it will affect the animals, plants, vehicles, fences, pipelines etc.
