# Electrical circuits. Series and parallel

## Do you want to understand how an electrical circuit works and build virtual electrical circuits?

The online electrical circuit simulations on this page will help you to better understand how electrical circuits work and how the different components that form them relate to each other.

An electrical circuit is a set of interconnected electrical components that allow the flow of electric current. These components can include power sources, such as batteries or generators, and control elements, such as switches or relays.

Electrical current flows through the circuit due to the electrical potential difference between the components. The unit of measurement for electric current is the ampere (A), while the unit of measurement for electric potential is the volt (V).

Electrical circuits can be direct current (DC) or alternating current (AC), depending on the type of power source used. DC circuits are commonly used in electronic devices such as computers and cell phones, while AC circuits are used in the transmission of electrical power over long distances.

Electrical circuits can also include components such as resistors, capacitors (capacitors) and inductors (coils), which can affect the flow of electric current in the circuit. These components can be used to control the amount of current flowing in the circuit or to store electrical energy.

In summary, electrical circuits are fundamental to the transmission and control of electrical power in a wide variety of devices and systems. The online electrical circuit simulations on this page will help you to improve the knowledge of electrical circuits. This is is essential for those working in fields related to electronics, electricity and energy.

## Electrical circuit construction kit

Explore with an electronics kit! Build circuits with resistors, ideal non ohmic bulbs, fuses, batteries and switches. Determine if everyday objects are conductors or insulators and make realistic ammeter and voltmeter measurements. View the circuit as a schematic diagram, or switch to a realistic view.

## Virtual electrical circuit simulations Lab

Do you like the “Circuit Construction Kit: DC”, but want to use only in-line ammeters? This is the simulation for you! Experiment with an electronic kit. Build circuits with batteries, resistors, ideal non- ohmic bulbs, fuses, and switches. Determine whether everyday objects are conductors or insulators, and make measurements with realistic ammeters and voltmeters. Observe the circuit in its schematic form, or change it to its realistic view.
