There is an interest in the biological effects of exposure to low-frequency electromagnetic fields issued by transmission lines on animals and humans. The fields generated by the lines are relevant for the design and operation of power systems. The study of the electric and magnetic fields in the transmission networks implemented commercial simulators bases on the finite element method. These commercial simulators are characterized by accuracy and high hardware and software requirements. This work presents CEM-LT, a tool that accurately precisely the electric and magnetic field in the transmission lines, with simple and intuitive handling and low processing times, making it ideal for being implemented together with optimization methods. The electric and magnetic field in the servant area for two case studies is analyzed to evaluate the accuracy and processing times. The level of accuracy is characterized by comparing the results with COMSOL obtaining errors of less than 2.4%. The case study with the highest computational requirement achieved a processing time of 3,027 seconds.
