In this paper, a new hybrid approach to modeling the magnetic induction produced by HV overhead power line which combines the current simulation method (CSM) and adaptive simulated annealing algorithm (ASA) is discussed. The aim of the ASA algorithm is to find the optimal position and number of current loops used in bundles conductors for an accurate magnetic induction. Several parameters affecting the magnetic induction have been studied; it is observed that, taking into account the effect of conductor sag is much more interesting particularly at the mid-span length where the magnetic induction becomes very significant, the results also indicated that the maximum magnetic induction levels are less than the limits recommended by the ICNIRP standard for general public and occupational exposure. The calculated results are compared with those obtained from the COMSOL 4.3a Multiphysics software. A good agreement has been reached.
