2.1 Series connection of resistors
If the power consumers (resistors) are arranged one after another so that the same current flows through them one speaks of a series connection (e.g. electric Christmas tree lights).
Furthermore, each supply line to a power consumer also represents at the same time an into series switched resistor.
