In this study, the internal (in-situ) electric field induced in human tissues by ELF and intermediate frequency uniform magnetic fields has been determined using the scalar potential finite difference (SPFD) method. These calculations were conducted on adult Japanese models and the calculation results were compared with the basic restrictions provided in the IEEE safety standard. Under the maximum permissible exposure condition defined in the IEEE C95.6 standard, the calculated internal electric fields exceeded the basic restriction in the cases of certain body parts and conditions.
