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. Electronics industry in Japan.

Freq. [MHz]

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

The gain as a function of the separation is shown in Figure 2. Since the so-called reflector, the longer parasitic element, has a current whose phase lags that of the driven element, one would expect the directivity to be in the direction of the reflector, opposite of the actual directional pattern of the Yagi—Uda antenna.

The wave generated by the driven element green propagates in both the forward and reverse directions as well as other directions, not shown. The above graph shows that the gain is increased by about 2. The above description is the basic idea of what is going on with the Wntenas antenna. For instance, let’s look at a two-element Yagi antenna 1 reflector, 1 feed element, 0 directors. Hence, even though the antenna is often called a Yagi antenna, Uda probably invented it. The result might be checked by direct measurement or by computer simulation.

The waves from the ajtenas elements superpose and interfere to enhance radiation in a single direction, achieving a very substantial increase in yagi-ud antenna’s gain compared to a simple dipole. John Wiley and Sons.


This has been computed for two exact half-wave dipole elements at various spacings in the accompanying graph. However using the above kinds of 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. In the next section, we’ll explain the principles of the Yagi-Uda antenna. One way of thinking about the antenss 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.

Given the associated costs of erecting an antenna and rotor system above a tower, the combination of antennas for three amateur bands in one unit yai-uda a very practical solution.

Retrieved 11 September As alluded to in the previous paragraph, yagi-udw lengths of the directors are typically less than the resonant length, which encourages wave propagation in the direction of the directors.

We model element number j as having a feedpoint at the centre with a voltage V j and a current I j yagi-ura into it. TV antennas are still a major application of the Yagi antenna.

The use of traps is not without disadvantages, however, as they reduce the bandwidth of the antenna on the individual uagi-uda and reduce the antenna’s electrical efficiency and subject the antenna to additional mechanical considerations wind loading, water and insect ingress.

This appears to have been due to Yagi filing a patent on the idea in Japan without Uda’s name in it, and later transferring the patent to the Marconi Company in the UK. This would tend to cancel the radiation of the driven element.

Yagi–Uda antenna

This iterative analysis method is not a straightforward. Popular Mechanicspp.

The gain increases with the number of parasitic elements used. A Yagi—Uda antennacommonly known as a Yagi antennais a directional antenna consisting of multiple parallel elements in a line, [1] usually half-wave dipoles made of metal rods. This was the preface and notice in advance for a series antdnas 11 papers with the same title by Uda between — on the antenna.


Views Read Edit View history. These elaborate designs create electrical breaks along each element both sides at which point a parallel LC inductor and capacitor circuit is inserted. This feed antenna is often altered in size to make it resonant in the presence of the parasitic elements typically, 0.

Now the difficult computation is in determining that mutual impedance Z 21 which requires a numerical solution.

Yagi-ida complicated Yagi designs were developed to give adequate gain over the broad television bands. Yagi antenna, yagi-uda antenna. However, Yagi always acknowledged Uda’s principal contribution to the design, and the proper name for the antenna is, as above, the Yagi—Uda antenna or array.

Let the driven element be designated 1 so that V 1 and I 1 are the voltage and current supplied by the transmitter. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. Institute of Electrical Engineers of Japan: We can also solve yag-uda the voltage V 1 at the feedpoint of the driven element using the earlier equation:. For instance, if there are 8 directors, and another director is added, the increases in gain will be less than 0.

Each element is of length Diand separated from the adjacent director by a length SDi. The antenaz of a Yagi—Uda array using just a driven element and a director is illustrated in the accompanying diagram taking all of these effects into account.
