What is a parallel connection?
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.

When you wish to bring a second generator on-line in order to do maintenance on the first one. They would be connected in parallel, but not yet switched on together, until you… are sure they are both in phase. This is simply accomplished by connecting a light bulb between the Phase of one to the Neutral of the other. The bulb will wax and wane as the generators come in and out of phase. When the bulb is brightest, switch them together.
A parallel port can be used to connect a large number of devices. The most common usage was for printers, although scanners, external disk drives, and network adapters also us…ed this port. With a special cable, two computers could also be connected directly for sharing files.
Yes, series and parallel connection of batteries is possible. When connected in series Voltage increases. In parallel, Current increases but voltage is constant.
The main Disadvantage of parallel connection is that it uses more hardware resources for example if you want to communicate between two system using parallel connection than i…t requires more numbers of connection between those two systems.It requires redundant hardware.
If lamps were connected in series, if one light blew out, the entire system would shut down. Although this is true, the main reason is that, by connecting each lamp in parall…el with each other, each is subject to the same voltage*. And the power rating of a lamp only applies when it is subjected to its rated voltage. (*The voltage across each branch of a parallel circuit is identical.)
The parallel port can be used for many different devices. It is most commonly used for printers, giving the parallel port the nickname "The printer port". It is also commonly …used for Iomega Zip and Jazz drives. In modern computing, however, the parallel port is rarely used. Because of that, computer enthusiasts will sometimes use the parallel port for case modification hacks, common hacks involving LEDs. The parallel port was phased out with the introduction of USB, a bus type network that allowed for faster speeds, PnP, and up to 127 devices per controller.
If you connect a device like a LED or a speaker in series, that means that you connect the positive terminal of one speaker/LED to the negative terminal of the other speaker/L…ED and apply the audio/voltage to the remaining positive and negative terminals. When you connect devices this way, that means that both of the speakers/LEDs are getting the exact same current, but different voltages depending on the position in the parallel circuit. If you connect a device in parallel, then that means that the device's positive and negative terminals are connected to the other device's positive and negative terminals, and then voltage is applied to the positive and negative terminals of the devices respectively. This means that the devices are getting the same voltage but the current varies and is highest at the positive connection and lowest at the negative connection. (The voltage that each device is getting is determined quite easily by doing the sum 'input voltage / number of devices'.)
Parallel ports are generally used to connect printers.
DATA WILL BE SENT IN DUAL YET IN SERIES DATA WILL BE SENT IN ASINGLE LINE
all the batteries connected in parallel to the source will get exactly the same power provided and if one branch is faulty, the whole connection to other batteries won't be af…fected, basically more junctions for current to move
A series connection will not work if one bulb fuses but in a parallel connection if one bulb fuses the rest will stay lit.
/t=/t1=/t2=/t3... vt=v1+v2+v3... rt=r1+r2+r3... series formula....
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 se…ries connection total voltage is equal the number of of volt per cells
An ammeter has low resistance (ideally no resistance) because it is placed in series with other circuit elements to detect how much current is flowing. If it is placed in para…llel with a component it will short-circuit it. That is a bad thing.
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, i…t is common for street lights to be connected in series.
In series connection current will be same. in parrel connection voltage will be same and current wil be varying
When capacitors are connected in parallel, the total capacitance is the sum of the individual capacitors' capacitances. If two or more capacitors are connected in parallel…, the overall effect is that of a single equivalent capacitor having the sum total of the plate areas of the individual capacitors. As we've just seen, an increase in plate area, with all other factors unchanged, results in increased capacitance. The total capacitance is more than any one of the individual capacitors' capacitances. The equivalent capacitance of two or more capacitors connected in parallel is simply the sum of the individual capacitances.
