This is a java program to find the optimized wire length between any two components in an electric circuits. This problem is similar to the problem of finding the shortest path between any two cities in the state. A simple Dijkstra’s algorithm would result in providing the shortest wire length between any two components in electric circuits.

Here is the source code of the Java Program to Optimize Wire Length in Electrical Circuit. The Java program is successfully compiled and run on a Windows system. The program output is also shown below.
