2.3 Mixed electric circuits

Mixed electric circuits, also called group circuits, are combinations of parallel and series connections. Group circuits can always be reduced to their basic components: the parallel and the series connections. One can use this characteristic for the calculation of partial currents, partial voltages and partial resistance. The following two examples and diagrams show how one has to proceed in this regard.

Diagram 18: Example 1 - Mixed electric circuits:


For the calculation of partial currents, partial voltages and partial resistance one has to simplify the mixed electric circuit.

Diagram 19: Step 1 - The series connection is substituted





Diagram 20: Step 2 - The parallel connection is substituted
