Types of Circuit

  1. 1. Types of Circuit Presented by: Octavio Mizzy Ahne K. BUILDING UTILITIES 2 NATIONAL UNIVERSITY - MANILA
  2. 2. NATIONAL UNIVERSITY - MANILA What is an Electric Circuit? An electrical circuit is an interconnection of electrical components. An electrical circuit consists of batteries, resistors, inductors, capacitors, switches, or transistors. An electrical network consists of a closed loop. A circuit is a closed path where electrons flow in a wire. As long as the copper wire is allowed to itself, the electrons drift between the atoms but never leave the copper.
  3. 3. NATIONAL UNIVERSITY - MANILA Closed Circuit A circuit without interruption, providing a continuous path through which a current can flow
  4. 4. NATIONAL UNIVERSITY - MANILA Open Circuit A circuit in which the continuity is broken due to which the electric current can not flow is known as an open circuit. In an open circuit, the current flowing is zero, thus no power dissipates from an open circuit.
  5. 5. NATIONAL UNIVERSITY - MANILA Series Circuit a series circuit is a path where the current flows from one component to another through a single path. In these types of series circuits, the negative terminal of the component is connected with the positive terminal and vice versa.
  6. 6. NATIONAL UNIVERSITY - MANILA Parallel Circuit A parallel circuit comprises branches so that the current divides and only part of it flows through any branch. The voltage, or potential difference, across each branch of a parallel circuit is the same, but the currents may vary.
  7. 7. NATIONAL UNIVERSITY - MANILA Short Circuit A parallel circuit comprises branches so that the current divides and only part of it flows through any branch. The voltage, or potential difference, across each branch of a parallel circuit is the same, but the currents may vary.
