```OBJECTIVES
After studying Chapter 7, the reader should be able to:
1. Prepare for ASE Electrical/Electronic Systems
(A6) certification test content area “A” (General
Electrical/Electronic System Diagnosis).
2. Identify a series-parallel circuit.
3. Calculate current flow and voltage drops in a
series-parallel circuit.
4. Identify where faults in a series-parallel circuit can
be detected or determined.

SERIES-PARALLEL CIRCUITS
• Series-parallel circuits are a combination of
series and parallel segments in one complex
circuit.
• A series-parallel circuit includes both parallel
loads or resistances, plus additional loads or
resistances that are electrically connected in
series.

SERIES-PARALLEL CIRCUITS
• A circuit where the load is in series with other loads
is parallel.

SERIES-PARALLEL CIRCUITS
• A circuit where a
parallel circuit contains
resistors or loads are in
series in one or more
branches.

SERIES-PARALLEL CIRCUITS
Series-Parallel Circuit Faults
• If a conventional parallel circuit, such as a
taillight circuit, had an electrical fault that
increased the resistance in one branch of the
circuit, then the amount of current flow
through that one branch will be reduced.

SOLVING SERIES-PARALLEL CIRCUIT
PROBLEMS
• The key to solving
series-parallel circuit
problems is to combine
or simplify as much as
possible.

EXAMPLES
• Each of the four examples includes solving
for the following:
– Total resistance
– Current flow (amperes) through each branch, as
well as total current flow
– Voltage drop across each resistance

SUMMARY
1.
A series-parallel circuit is called a compound circuit or a
combination circuit.
2.
A series-parallel circuit is a combination of a series and a
parallel circuit, which does not include fuses or switches.
3.
A fault in a series portion of the circuit would affect the
operation if the series part was in the power or the ground
side of the parallel portion of the circuit.
4.
A fault in one leg of a series-parallel circuit will affect just
the component(s) in that one leg.

REVIEW QUESTIONS
1. Explain why an increase in resistance in the series
part of a series-parallel circuit will affect the
current (amperes) through the parallel legs
(branches).
2. What would be the effect of an open circuit in one
leg of a parallel portion of a series-parallel circuit?
3. What would be the effect of an open circuit in a
series portion of a series-parallel circuit?
