“I’ve never seen electricity; that’s why I don’t pay for it.”

Steven Wright

Everything that is connected to an electrical circuit and draws current is referred to as a”load.” Electrical loads can be classified in three different categories: resistive, inductive, and capacitive. Each of these types of loads limits the amount of current that will flow through it, although they do it in different ways. Resistors impede the flow of current through friction and they convert electrical energy to heat energy. Inductors and capacitors impede the flow of current through magnetic fields and stored electrical charges, respectively, but instead of converting electrical energy to heat energy, they store electrical ...
