Re: Difference between Short and Open Circuit

As you want to get the details of difference between Short and Open Circuit so here it is for you:

~~ A short circuit is simply a low resistance connection between the two conductors supplying electrical power to any circuit.
But Open Circuit is an electric circuit that has been broken, so that there is no complete path for current flow.

~~ In the case of short circuit model, the RF device will use the input impedance of the next stage as its load.
In the case of open circuit, the device is isolated from the next stage, however, the signal still goes through.

~~ An open circuit is where there is no current flow ans voltage tends to infinity.
A short circuit is where the voltage tends to zero and current tends to infinity.

~~ Short circuit is a circuit where the impedance is very low, close to zero ohms, causing a high current. This is often a fault condition.
An open circuit is a circuit where the impedance is very high, close to infinity ohms, casuing no current.
