### What is Current Electricity?

Current electricity is defined as the flow of electrons from one section of the circuit to another. Electric current is one of the most basic concepts that exist within electrical and electronic science – electric current is at the core of the science of electricity.

Whether it is an electrical heater, a large electrical grid system, a mobile phone, computer, remote sensor node or whatever, the concept of electrical current is central to its operation.
