Finding a Transfer Function using Laplace

  1. May 23, 2012 #1
    I'm trying to find the Transfer function of the circuit below so that I can draw the Bode plot for it. I chose to use Laplace because I think it made it a little simpler.

    My equations so far:

    KVL of Left Loop: EQUATION1

    KVL of Right Loop: EQUATION2


    Rearranging EQUATION2 gives:
    I1=(1/900)((2E6)/s +1300)I2
    Substitute this back into EQUATION1 to get Vs in terms of I2 and s.

    When I do:
    H(s)= Vo/Vs
    I get:
    H(s)= 5000/(3(s+5000))

    Which I'm pretty sure is wrong.

    I think you'll want to check the math for your capacitor impedance; 1/(50E-6) is not 2E6.
