I've been learning about AC circuits and they seem pretty straight forward, except when it comes to transformers. I have this circuit and I want to figure out the Voltage and Power at R2, and also the input Power. A note to add is that the inductance of the primary coil and the capacitor are in resonance.


simulate this circuit – Schematic created using CircuitLab

I know there's some mirroring effect going on which can be described as the first circuit in parallel, but whenever I do the calculations and solve for the voltage over R2 I get expressions which does not match with simulations (or reason, such as voltage going to infinity as N goes to 0). If someone could help me with this problem or point me toward some good tutorials/lecture material dealing with these examples I would be very thankful :)
