In the circuit shown the 120V, 60Hz source supplies the ideal load shown through an ideal 2:1 transformer. What steady state current would you expect to read on the rms ammeter shown (please find the picture attached)?
Zeq = (1/Z1+ 1/Z2)^-1
Z1 = 10+j(60*10^-3)
The Attempt at a Solution
What I did first was at the right side I combined the impedances and got Zeq as 9.53+j1.5068. Then I transformed it over to the primary side by multiplying but it's ratio, which is two. I get 19.027 + j3.013. Then I use the relationship V/Z=I to obtain 120/(19.027+j3.013) = 6.15-j0.97 or 6.229A with a phase angle of -9 degrees. However I am not sure if I got the right answer (there are no solutions to this...) Help!!
