Electrical Circuits Nearly all branches of electrical engineering are  fundamentally based on circuit theory.  The only subject in electrical engineering that is  more fundamental than circuit theory is  electromagnetic field theory, which deals with the  physics of electromagnetic fields and waves.

Electrical Circuits The Ideal Basic Circuit Element Has Only two terminal It is described mathematically in terms of current and/or  voltage It cannot be subdivided into other elements An electrical circuit may be defined as two or more  Basic Circuit Elements interconnected by conductors.

Electrical Circuits In electrical circuits, there are numerous types of  electrical components such as resistors. capacitors.  inductors, diodes, transistors, transformers, batteries,  lamps. fuses, switches, and motors.
