# Simple node analysis simulate this circuit – Schematic created using CircuitLab

I calculated the transfer function $$\frac{I_L}{In}=\frac{R_1R_2}{s^2L^2+sL(R_1+R_2)}$$

starting from the node analysis at the nodes V1 and V2, so: $$\frac{V_1}{R_1}+\frac{V_1}{Ls}-\frac{V_2}{Ls}=In$$ $$-\frac{V_1}{Ls}+\frac{V_2}{Ls}+\frac{V_2}{R_2}=0$$

Because I obtain a second order system, this seems quite wrong.

Have I consider the admittances in the node analysis? So: $$\frac{V_1}{G_1}+V_1Ls-V_2Ls=In$$ $$-V_1Ls+V_2Ls\frac{V_2}{G_2}=0$$ In this case I obtain a more likely: $$\frac{I_L}{In}=\frac{1}{sL(R_1+R_2)+R_1R_2}$$

But I'am not sure about the node analysis.

What do you think is the correct solution?

Note: In both cases I consider $$I_L=\frac{V_2}{Ls}$$

• inspection of the transfer function at dc (s at zero) tells you it is wrong. Feb 8 '14 at 17:27
• @Andy aka: Thanks for the advice. I think that I found the problem, it's just that I(L) must be equal to (V1-V2)/Ls. At least, I think :D

$$I_L = I_n \frac{R_1}{R_1 + R_2 + sL}$$
Also, the final formula in your question is incorrect; the voltage across the inductor is not $V_2$
