Hello everyone,How to make the electric current effect like the picture above?

That looks like simple glass "tubing" to me. Inside these tubes are small emissive spheres that move along that tube.

Not so much an electric current effect as a representation of moving information. But yep, like @DasFrodo says, nice and easy to sort out, that one. Use the same splines you use as paths in your sweep to clone the spheres onto, then animate offset in the Cloner to get them all streaming along the tubes... Also, looks like maybe some subtle glow was added to those spheres in post, which is the best place for it, so you'll need to get those spheres out as a luminance pass for best effect...
