2.1 Introduction

A network is an interconnection of elements, components, input signals, and output signals. The networks are of two types, viz active network and passive network. An active network contains one or more sources of supply whereas a passive network does not contain any source of supply voltage or current.

There are three basic components of a circuit or a network, viz resistor, capacitor, ...
