There isn't (or should not be) much disagreement about the current
in a coil. Quite simply, unless there is a significant loss -
either I^2R or radiation - the current into and out of a coil must
be the same. After all, a coil is a passive device and can neither
create energy (increase current) or destroy energy (make current
Your real effort should be to develop a model that will adequately
explain the loss and/or radiation.
