How to Wire Bulbs in Parallel?

Today you will learn about wiring lights in parallel with a complete diagram, This type of wiring connection is used mostly in our daily life. In this parallel wiring diagram, I have shown three light bulbs with an AC supply. Before I write about the diagram and wiring connection, ” I want to write some about Parallel Circuit.

What is Parallel Circuit?

A parallel circuit is a circuit which has two or more two paths of flowing current, In this circuit, the voltage (V) will be the same in every path of the circuit and the Current (Ampere) will be different.

Method of Wiring Bulbs in Parallel

For wiring lights in a parallel circuit, first of all, connect the Line wire (well-known by name of Phase wire) to all bulb sockets/holders one,one terminal as shown in below image/diagram and then connect the Neutral wire (N) to the others terminals of bulb sockets as shown in the below diagram.

How do wire bulbs in parallel?

In the example diagram I explained every part of this circuit with images and symbols, for better understanding I am gonna share a video tutorial, but before the video let’s discuss some advantages of parallel connection wiring.

Advantages of Parallel Circuit.

A parallel circuit has two or more than two paths of flowing current or completing circuit, e.g example if one of the about 3 bulbs is fired or for any other reason one bulb stops working then the two other bulbs will continue the work which is best for a lighting system.
In this circuit, the voltage will be the same at every point of the circuit and the ampere will be different.

Video Tutorial

There are many advantages of parallel CKT, further, i will write about this, however for better understanding, i share a video tutorial below, watch it for a better understanding and I hope after the video tutorial you will completely understand the parallel and series circuit.
