This part of IEC 62226 introduces the coupling factor K, to enable exposure assessment for complex exposure situations, such as non-uniform magnetic field or perturbed electric field. The coupling factor K has different physical interpretations depending on whether it relates to electric or magnetic field exposure.
The aim of this part is to define in more detail this coupling factor K, for the case of simple models of the human body, exposed to non-uniform magnetic fields. It is thus called "coupling factor for non-uniform magnetic field".
All the calculations developed in this document use the low frequency approximation in which displacement currents are neglected. This approximation has been validated in the low frequency range in the human body where parameter εω <
For frequencies up to a few kHz, the ratio of conductivity and permittivity should be calculated to validate this hypothesis.
