I think you should evaluate to complicate the circuit and use two linear optocouplers (one for the voltage the other one for the current) in order to avoid the ADC (and possibly other components) to...

I think (not sure) it specifies the carrier type: no suffix=tube, T suffix=reel. The sign+ means ROHS compliant

What you mean with " without biasing" ? DC level was 0 V, or the inductor was disconnected ?
The inductor must be conected to ground directly or through a DC power supply, otherwise the DC voltage...

Yes, if we call Vadd the added voltage to the input of Rn with respect to Vin (that is the voltage applied to the non inverting pin), then

Vout = Vin - Rf/Rn*Vadd

Ideally if Vadd=0 then...

There is a little mistake in the Akanimo answer: sqrt(2500-900)=40 ohm, then XL=60 ohm

Furthermore if you want to calculate alfa, we know that tg(alfa)=im(Z)/real(Z), that is tg(alfa)=X/R.

Your calculation is correct: the coupling factor you used (0.99) can be neglected.

I think the scale of the graph you represent the output waveform is too wide. Try to plot the output waveform...

You have to check the output of R and N divider. It could be the level of the rf signal sent back to the pll is too low. Also investigate if the charge pump is working properly.

As far as I correctly understand your question, the signals to the primary coil are rectified, that means they are A*|sin(wt)| and A*|sin(wt+90)| (I supposed same amplitude).

dBuV/m is not a measure of power (or EIRP) but a measure of electric field E.

What you observed is due to the self biasing of the transistor. Increasing the quiescent current the phenomenon should disappear.

Using "_" to denote the upper bar, your part is _(_A*_B+A*B).
Now, applying De Morgan two times:

_(_A*_B+A*B) = _(_A*_B)*_(A*B)

_(_A*_B)*_(A*B) = (A+B)*(_A+_B)
