Solving the time-dependent Ginzburg-Landau equation with the finite element method, we discussed the vortex dynamics in superconducting networks. We show that in the asymmetric networks, the current driven vortex dynamics becomes asymmetric, and therefore rectifying the vortex motion may be possible.
