Voltage division rule

Voltage division rule is one of the basic rules of circuit analysis. It is applicable to all series circuits and combination circuits. Series circuit always acts as a Voltage divider. In a series circuit, the same current flows through each resistance. Hence the voltage drops across each resistor are proportional to their ohmic value.

Series and Parallel circuits

Series and parallel connection of lamps
Series and parallel connection of lamps
Current flow in a circuit is determined by the impedance offered by the circuit components, which is in turn determined by the way circuit components are connected. Series connection and parallel connection are the two simplest ways of connecting a circuit.

Difference between RCCB and RCBO

RCCBs and RCBO are residual current protection devices. Residual current protection is achieved by monitoring the flow of current in the line and neutral. In a healthy circuit, the current flow through the line will be equal to the return flow in the neutral. In the case of any abnormalities, this return flow may not be equal to the current flow in the line. Residual current devices sense such scenarios and interrupt the circuit.

Difference between MCCB and RCCB

MCCBs and RCCBs are circuit protection devices with two different application. When the former protect against overload and short circuit, the later protects against Residual currents and electric shock.
