The universal development of electrical grid infrastructure of the cities leads to an increase in the level of electromagnetic pollution of residential and especially industrial areas. Concern of the urban population about human exposure to potential danger of negative influence of electromagnetic fields (EMF) causes the need for large-scale EMF research in urban areas. To conduct this type of study, the estimates of measurement errors of intensities of the electrical and magnetic components of the EMF should be performed. The goal of this research is to assess the EMF measurement errors of the industrial frequency in urban areas. The error estimation of EMF measurements generated by power line communication was performed using the section of the territory of Moscow’s North East, as an example. The main statistical characteristics of measurement errors were determined. It is found that, when performing 3 series of measuring, the errors reduce by 1.5-3 times. When strong EMF intensities exist, it is recommended to carry out not one but a series of measurements with subsequent averaging of the results in each investigated point of the area.
