    The paper presents example measurements of electromagnetic fields in an indoor distribution substation. We measured at different places: At Place A (near the fuse panel), using (1) frequency bandwidth (FB) 40kHz-100kHz, fields varied 0.011-0.039 μT and using (2) FB 5Hz-100kHz, fields varied 67-74 μT; at Place B (the surface of the collector meter), the fields varied from 0.022 to 0.083 μT (40kHz-100kHz); at Place C (near the antenna of the collector meter), the maximum radio frequency field was 1.0 W/m2, and at Place D (the surface of the antenna), it was 1.8 W/m2. The measured values were below ICNIRP guidelines.
