To Wire Lamps in Parallel?

These all lamps are connected in Parallel. Each lamp or Bulb is connected between Line L (also known as phase) and Neutral N.
In this circuit,adding or removing one lamp has no effect on the others lamps because the Voltage in parallel circuit is same but the current is different. Any number of lamps can be added in this kind of circuit, simply by extending the L and N conductors to other lamps.

Advantages of this circuit:

  • In case of break in the cable or removal of any lamp will not break the all circuits, in other words, other lights/lamps will still work and glow.
  • As more lamps are added, they will all be reduced in brightness. Because voltages is shared or divided in a series circuit.


  •  More size of cable wire is used in parallel lighting circuit wiring.

  1. I've Always go back to your site because I like everything you have posted here, always helpful and informative.

  2. Thanks for your appreciation,

  3. Nice post. This the normal and efficient electrical wiring in the houses. The most commonly used wire is copper coated with the PVC. Copper is used because of the best electricity conducting behavior. Nearly all large cities and smaller ones now follow the recommendations of the National Electrical Code. Electrical wiring is generally done by the experienced and certified electrical contractors
