In electrical circuits series and parallel are two basic ways of wiring components. The naming comes after the method of attaching components, i.e. one after the other, or next to each other. As a demonstration, consider a very simple circuit consisting of two light bulbs and one 9V battery. If a wire joins the battery to one bulb, to the next bulb, then back to the battery, in one continuous loop, the bulbs are said to be in series. If, on the other hand, each bulb is wired separately to the battery it is wired in a parallel circuit.

How are streetlights connected in series or parallel?

of course in parallel.... for the voltage har 2 b constant... and malfunctioning of one light will not affect other lights..... Answer Actually, in North America, it

Ammeter burns out when connected in parallel why?

Ammeters must be connected in series with the load. When connecting in parallel the meter appears as a short. If you open the meter, there's usually an 850ma fuse, and/or a 2A

How are generators connected in parallel?

Paralleling generators The following is for three phase manual paralleling of two generators. Today's control systems will sense and do this operation automatically but the

Why do you connect a diode in parallel to a capacitor?

1. bec the capacitor not allow the current to pass through it after it has charged & it charged in no time ex:(10^-4 second). 2. because it is necessary to avoid wrong pola

Why are most appliances connecting in parallel?

(1) To ensure that the voltage across each appliance is the same and equal to the supply voltage (otherwise none will operate at their rated power), and (2) to ensure that all

What are the laws of series and parallel connection?

1.In series connection the total resistance is equal the total number of resistor that was connected in series 2.the current is constant in a series connection 3.in a

What is the purpose of connecting transformer in parallel?

In power distribution: . Parallel transformers share load and so have a longer lifespan . If one fails and the other is capable of handling the entire load for a time, the
