MEP is a ubiquitous problem in modern civilization. It is present everywhere, both inside and outside the home. Major polluters are utility power, switch mode power supplies (electronics), AMI meters (due to conducted high-frequency pulsed radiation), fluorescent lights (including CFLs), variable speed motors (many “smart” appliances), inverters (especially solar and cell antennas), and ground current (especially rural areas). It is a highly erratic electric field.
Topics include a brief history of micro surge electrical pollution (MEP), four distinct points of view, and microsurge electrical pollution’s etiology, health effects, measurement methods, mitigation.
