The journal Scientific Reports has published an article by femu and co-authors entitled: "The role of the DC component in human perception of AC–DC hybrid electric fields and a comparison with the AC component". The study was motivated by the newly introduced construction of both high-voltage alternating current (HVAC) and high-voltage direct current (HVDC) overhead power lines mounted on the same pylon. The study is based on the previous publications of the femu (Jankowiak et al. 2021 and Kursawe et al. 2021) and expands the previous publication of Jankowiak et al. 2022.
The aim was to examine the role of the DC component in human perception of AC–DC hybrid electric field. Therefore, 49 participants with high detection ability were investigated using a design that combines small variations of the DC component with different AC electric fields.
