# serial and parallel electrical circuit

In electrical installations are known by 2 terms of circuit is serial electric circuit and parallel circuit. Each circuit has its own advantages and disadvantages

The advantages and disadvantages of serial and parallel electrical circuits. What is the meaning of serial and parallel circuits and how to assemble series and parallel electrical circuits will be explained in the following article

## what is serial and parallel circuits?

Serial electric circuits are electric circuits arranged in sequence with each other

In serial circuit the electric current will flow through one path to another path in sequence

The existence of damage to one component cause the other equipment becomes problematic

Parallel electrical circuits are electric circuits arranged in rows or branched. In parallel circuit in case of damage to one component will not affect other components

This parallel circuit is what we often encounter in homes

After you know about the definition of serial and parallel circuit then you must know the advantages and disadvantages of series and parallel electrical circuits

Series and parallel electrical circuits have their respective advantages and disadvantages

The advantages and disadvantages of series and parallel electrical circuits are as follows

## Advantages of serial electrical circuit

The advantages of the series electric circuit are cost savings due to the number of cables As well as the few required switches as well as the easier installation

## Disadvantages of serial electrical circuit

Because series of electrical circuits are arranged in sequence so if one of the lights or components goes out or is damaged then the others will be extinguished

## advantages of parallel electrical circuits

Because parallel circuits are arranged individually then we are free to turn on or off any electrical equipment without affecting other electrical equipment

## Disadvantages of parallel electrical circuits

The disadvantages of parallel electrical circuits are the need for wires and switches that are much in line with the amount of equipment installed

Installation of parallel electrical circuits also require more expensive cost than series electricity

Constructs series and parallel electrical circuits

A simple example of series and parallel electrical circuits is as follows

The series of lamps are arranged in series

In the picture above if one of the lights breaks either L1, L2, or L3 then all the lights will break

Parallel lamp circuit

The above lights are arranged in parallel if one of the lamps is damaged then it does not affect the other lights and this is why many home electrical appliances are arranged in parallel
