- One or more electric circuits incorporating two or more interconnected electrical elements or components, such as resistors, capacitors, coils or generators. There are various ways to classify electric networks. For instance, if a network incorporates active devices, such as amplifiers, it is an active network, while a passive network does not. A bilateral network is one which functions equally well in both directions, while a unilateral network does not. There are many examples of specific networks, and these include bridge, crossover, decoupling, and resistance-capacitance networks. Also called electrical network, or network (2).
