The elements are given the correct lengths and spacings so that the radio waves radiated by the driven element and those re-radiated by the parasitic elements all arrive at the front of the antenna in-phase, so they superpose and add, increasing signal strength in the forward direction. In the next section, we’ll explain the principles of the Yagi-Uda antenna. The net effect of these two waves, when added bottom, leftis almost complete cancellation.

Using the above relationships, then, we can solve for I 2 in terms of I The length of this element is given as R and the distance between the feed and the reflector is SR. Radio frequency antenna types Antennas radio Radio electronics Japanese inventions Amateur radio. The result might be checked by direct measurement or by computer simulation. At the lower frequency, the entire element including the remaining inductance due to the trap is close to half-wave resonance, implementing a different Yagi—Uda antenna.

Geometry of Yagi-Uda antenna. In fact, that would be the case were we to construct a phased array with rather closely spaced elements all driven by voltages in phase, as we posited. Thus the directivity of the array indeed is in the direction towards the director.

Yagi Antennas Design Parameters Top: Hence, even though the antenna is often called a Yagi antenna, Uda probably invented it. Yagi published the first English-language reference on the antenna in a survey article on short wave research in Japan and it came to be associated with his name.


All the other elements are considered parasitic.

Yagi–Uda antenna – Wikipedia

Yagi Antennas Design Parameters. John Wiley and Sons. Therefore, the forward waves add together, constructive interference enhancing the power in that direction, while the backward waves partially cancel each other destructive interferencethereby reducing the power emitted in that direction. The ratio of voltage to current at this point is the driving point impedance Z dp of the 2-element Yagi:. The Japanese military authorities first became aware of this technology after the Battle of Singapore when they captured the notes of a British radar technician that mentioned “yagi antenna”.

It is simple to construct and has a high gaintypically greater than 10 dB. Views Read Edit Gagi-uda history. Indeed, the latter had so many antenna elements arranged on its back — in addition to its formidable turreted defensive armament in the nose and tail, and anfenas the hull — it was nicknamed the fliegendes Stachelschweinor “Flying Porcupine” by German airmen.

Yagi antenna, yagi-uda antenna. As alluded to in the previous paragraph, the lengths of the directors are typically less than the resonant length, which encourages wave propagation in the direction of the directors. The above description is the basic idea of what is going on with the Yagi-Uda antenna.

Retrieved 18 September The largest and best-known use is as rooftop terrestrial television antennas[3] but it is also used for point-to-point fixed communication links, [2] in radar antennas, [4] and for long distance shortwave communication by shortwave broadcasting stations and radio amateurs. With only the driven element present the driving point impedance would have simply yagi-yda Z 11but has now been modified by the presence of the parasitic element.

The combination of antsnas director’s position antneas shorter length has thus obtained a unidirectional rather than the bidirectional response of the driven half-wave dipole element alone.

Until the development of the log-periodic antenna in the s, it was the only type of antenna that could give adequate fringe reception in areas far from the television transmitter.


However using the above kinds yago-uda iterative analysis one can calculate the performance of a given a set of parameters and adjust them to optimize the gain perhaps subject to some constraints.

The work was presented for the first time in English by Yagi who was either Uda’s professor or colleague, my sources are conflictingwho went to America and gave the first English talks on the antenna, which led to its widespread use. Retrieved 29 July The Yagi antenna was invented in Japan, with results first published in This so-called trap has the effect of truncating the element at the higher frequency band, atenas it approximately a half wavelength in length.

Each element is of length Diand separated from the adjacent director by a length SDi. The current distribution yagi-uea a real antenna element is only approximately given by the usual assumption of a classical standing wave, requiring a solution of Hallen’s integral equation taking into account the other conductors.

Freq. [MHz]

Curves Re and Im are the resistive and reactive parts of the mutual impedance. There is typically only one reflector; adding more reflectors improves performance very slightly.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Having the reflector slightly longer than resonant serves two purposes. Retrieved 11 September Hence, the current on the reflector lags the voltage induced on the reflector.

A major drawback was the Yagi’s inherently narrow bandwidth. The rest of the elements are parasitic – they reflect or help to transmit the energy in a particular direction.
