Description: The animation (seen in the video), makes it possible to visualize the short-circuit situations and to observe the behavior of the other dipoles: overheating of the generator (battery) or modification of the brightness. Video:(To be projected by choosing 1080p HD with the cogwheel).

Short circuit: Voluntary or accidental connection of two points of an electrical circuit between which there is a potential difference, by a low resistance conductor. This results in an excessive current flowing through the circuit.
