# School Science/Types of Electric Circuit

An electric circuit is a complete path of electrical current formed by the interconnection of one or more sources with or without source parameters. Mainly electric circuits are 2 types. They are **1.AC Circuit** and **2.DC Circuit**. But here are more some kinds of circuit which shown below.

## There are 2 types of electric circuit according to the sourceEdit

They are active circuit and passive circuit.
**1.Active circuit**- This is a one kind of electric circuit which has one or more electric sources.
**2.Passive circuit**- This is a one kind of electric circuit which has no electric source.

## There are 3 types of electric circuit according to connectionEdit

They are series circuit, parallel circuit and mixed circuit.
**1.Series circuit**- Series circuit is an electric circuit which has one way for passing the current.
**2.Parallel circuit**- This is an electric circuit which has more than one way for passing the current.
**3.Mixed circuit**- Mixed circuit means that a circuit with series and parallel connection.

## There are 2 types of electric circuit according to the characteristics of parametersEdit

**1.Linear circuit**- This is an electric circuit whose parameters are always constant. And
**No.2 Non-linear circuit**- This is an electric circuit whose parameters are non-constant.
