What are the Five basic electric circuits

Published by ASHA CHAUHAN on

There are five Types of electric Circuits. [1] Closed circuit, [2] Open circuit, [3] parallel circuit, [4] Series circuit and [5] Short circuit.

Each this type design a circuit of or creating a circuit of it’s conductivity of path or electricity.

[1] Electric Closed circuit

Definition :- A circuit without interruption, providing a continuous path through which a current can flow. Means circuit loop closed condition with any load.

An electric circuit through which current can flow in an uninterrupted path. Compare open circuit.

please shown fig… Below

close circuit

[2] Electric Open circuit

Definition :- An electrical circuit in which the continuity is broken so that current does not flow. Means circuit loop open condition with any load.

An open circuit is defined to be basically a circuit where the energy is not flowing through it. A closed-circuit is defined to be the one where the energy is allowed to flow through it by turning it on.

A circuit is made closed if the electricity is flowing from an energy source to the desired endpoint of the electric circuit.

[3] Parallel circuit

A parallel circuit comprises branches so that the current divides and only part of it flows through any branch.

In parallel circuit Voltage are same but it’s load current flow in path is different.

[4] Series circuit

A series circuit comprises a path along which the whole current flows through each component. In Series Circuit Voltage are different but its Current is same.

A parallel circuit comprises branches so that the current divides and only part of it flows through any branch.

Advantages of Series Circuit

Easy to design and build the circuit.

If a component breaks, the current flow stops.

It acts as a current regulator.

The cost to build a Series Circuit is less compared to Parallel Circuit.

[5] Electric Short circuit

Definition :- A short circuit is an abnormal connection between two nodes of an electric circuit intended to be at different voltages.

Between Two path circuit in which two terminal positive positive ( different voltages flow ) to connect or touch each other so it will be short that called is electric short circuit.
