Yagi antenna design is done most often via measurements, and sometimes computer simulations. The current distribution along 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.
Gain versus separation for 2-element Yagi antenna. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. However, Yagi always acknowledged Uda’s principal contribution to antrnas design, and the proper name for the antenna is, as above, the Yagi—Uda antenna or array. Institute of Electrical Engineers of Japan: For instance, let’s look at a two-element Yagi antenna 1 reflector, 1 feed element, 0 directors.
This is the current induced in the parasitic element due to the current I 1 in the driven element. Wikimedia Commons has media related to Yagi-Uda antennas.
Due to the differences in the elements’ lengths Z 11 and Z 22 have a substantially different reactive component. All the other elements are considered parasitic. In other words, the crest of the forward wave from the reflector element reaches the driven element just as the crest of the wave is emitted from that element.
Thus the antenna radiates a unidirectional beam of radio waves from the front director antenaz of the antenna.
Popular Mechanicspp. This would tend to cancel the radiation of the driven element. The Yagi—Uda array in its basic form has very narrow bandwidth, 2—3 percent of the centre frequency. The radio waves from each yagii-uda are emitted with a phase delay, so that the individual waves emitted in the forward direction up are in phase, while the waves in the reverse direction are out of phase. The reflector element is typically slightly longer than the feed element.
Having the reflector slightly longer than resonant serves two purposes. The directors are slightly shorter than the driven element, while the reflector s are slightly longer.
The work was originally done by Shintaro Uda, but published in Japanese. The Yagi-Uda antenna or Yagi Antenna is one yagi-udw the most brilliant antenna designs.

Views Read Edit View history. Each element is of length Diand separated from the adjacent director by a length SDi.
The work was presented for the first time in English by Yagi who was either Uda’s professor or colleague, my sources are conflictingwho natenas to America and gave the first English talks on the antenna, which led to its widespread use. The Japanese military authorities first became aware of antenaa technology after the Battle of Singapore when they captured the notes of a British radar technician that mentioned “yagi antenna”.
For instance, if there are 8 directors, and another director is added, the increases in gain will be less than 0. Typically, the first yavi-uda will add approximately 3 dB of overall gain if designed wellthe second will add about 2 dB, the third about 1.
Using the above relationships, then, we can solve for I 2 in terms of I Retrieved 11 September There is typically only one reflector; adding more reflectors improves performance aygi-uda slightly.
This is the only member of the above structure that is actually excited a source voltage or current applied. Retrieved 15 April Retrieved 29 July Geometry of Yagi-Uda antenna. Yagi antenna, yagi-uda antenna. Hence, the current on the reflector lags the voltage induced on the reflector. Just considering two such elements we can write the voltage at each feedpoint in terms of the currents using the mutual impedances Z ij:.
So one could as well model the operation of the parasitic element as the superposition of a dipole element receiving power and sending it down a transmission line to a matched load, and a transmitter sending the same amount of power up the transmission line back toward the antenna element.
Very complicated Yagi designs were developed to give adequate gain over the broad television bands. It is simple to construct and has a high gaintypically greater than 10 dB. Similarly, the gain for this Yagi antenna can be plotted as a function of director spacings, or as a function of the number of directors used.
One way of thinking about the operation of such an antenna is to consider a parasitic element to be a normal dipole element of finite diameter fed at its centre, with a short circuit across its feed point.
In the next section, we’ll explain the principles of the Yagi-Uda antenna. This was the preface and notice in advance for a series of 11 papers with the same title by Uda between — on the antenna. The length of the feed element is given in Figure 1 as F.
Using a second set of traps, a “triband” antenna can be resonant at three different bands. 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 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, antebas they superpose and add, increasing signal strength in the forward direction.
