## ELECTRIC NETWORK

The electrical component (resister, capacitor, inductor and supply sources) is connected in circuit in what ever manner i.e series or parallel is called electrical network.

## COMPLEX NETWORK

It is those circuits which consist of many parameters (resister, inductor etc) and these parameters are connected in such a manners that don't solve easily by ohm law. When use ohm's law for the solution of circuit so it's required a lot of equation so we solve these circuits by different theorems. These circuits may be AC or DC.

## CIRCUIT

Circuit is a close conducting, which allow current to pass or intending to pass pith the circuit.

## OPEN CIRCUIT

Such circuits which not complete the path and its external resistance is infinite and zero current.

## SHORT CIRCUIT

Such circuits, which provide shortest path to complete the circuit (before the load). It's resistance is zero and current is infinite

## PARAMETERS OR CONSTANT

The different element from which an electric circuit are making is parameters or constant. i-c resistance, inductance and capacitance.

## LINEAR CIRCUIT

Such circuit whose parameters do not change and remain constant with voltage or current is called linear circuit.

## NON-LINEAR CIRCUIT

Such circuit whose parameter are change with voltage or current and do not remain constant is called non-linear circuit.

## UNILATERAL CIRCUIT

This is those circuit to which we apply the supply from only one side or they pass current from one side and from the other side they just behave like open circuit. i-e diode, which is normally used for rectification (conversion from AC to DC) process.

## BILATERAL CIRCUIT

This is that type of circuit, which pass the current from both side, OR they work in proper way when current is applied to it (but at a time from one side). i-e transmission line etc.

## NODE

Appoint in a circuit which connect two or more than two circuit elements together is called node.

OR

Node is a point in a circuit from which current is distributed in two or more than two paths.

## BRANCH

The path b/w two junctions is called branch.

## LOOP

A close path in a circuit, which do not encount any component more than one time.

## MESH

It is a component, which do not have any loop in it. OR Mesh is a loop, which has no loop within it.
