Series-Parallel Connection is also known as the combined resistive circuits. This is the combination of series circuit and parallel circuit. Series circuit can be described as a circuit with only one path for charges to move along. This was also the common circuit connection in most rural areas. On the other hand, Parallel circuit can be described as circuit with multiple paths intended for charges to flow freely. This type of circuit connection was used in most urban areas around the country. In addition, series circuit components are connected end-to-end in a line to form a single path for electrons to flow while parallel circuit components are connected between the same set of electrically common points. But nowadays, Series-Parallel Connection is the most commonly used type of circuit connection in residential areas.
This type of circuit connection is more advantageous because if one component of circuit is damaged then rest of the component of the circuit will perform their work without any disturbance. This can prevent fires if ever short circuits will occur. If ever short circuit will happen, only the series connection will breakdown or be affected and the parallel connection will still work. PICTORIAL DIAGRAM
A wiring diagram is a simplified conventional pictorial representation of an electrical circuit. It shows the components of the circuit as simplified shapes, and the power and signal connections between the devices.
A schematic diagram represents the elements of a system using abstract, graphic symbols rather than realistic pictures.
A schematic diagram represents the elements of a system using abstract, graphic symbols rather than realistic pictures. It usually omits all details that are not relevant to the information the schematic is intended to convey, and may add unrealistic elements that aid comprehension. It is also a simplified representation of a system. Such schematics are often not to scale and use symbols rather than realistic images. Their purpose is to explain how a system is organized and how it works. A wiring diagram is a simplified conventional pictorial representation of an electrical circuit. It shows the components of the circuit as simplified shapes, and the power and signal connections between the devices. A wiring diagram usually gives more information about the relative position and arrangement of devices and terminals on the devices, to help in building the device. This is unlike a schematic diagram, where the arrangement of the components’ interconnections on the diagram usually does not correspond to the components’ physical locations in the finished device.
A pictorial diagram would show more detail of the physical appearance, whereas a wiring diagram uses a more symbolic notation to emphasize interconnections over physical appearance. A wiring diagram is used to troubleshoot problems and to make sure that all the connections have been made and that everything is present. The main source of electricity is the MERALCO (Manila Electric Company) post. It is connected to the electric meter then followed by the fuse box. An electricity meter or energy meter is a device that measures the amount of electric energy consumed by a residence, business, or an electrically powered device. Electricity meters are typically calibrated in billing units, the most common one being the kilowatt hour. Periodic readings of electric meters establish billing cycles and energy used during a cycle. The fuse box is the box that contains the fuses for all the electric circuits in a building. It is usually fixed to a wall and connected to the outlet, switches, and all the appliances inside the house.
