The Yagi antenna or Yagi-Uda antenna or aerial is a particularly popular form of antenna where directivity and gain are required. Although the Yagi has become. The famous yagi-uda antenna is discussed. The background on yagis (the yagi antenna) are given starting with a discussion of the Japanese inventor Yagi. This example optimizes a 6-element Yagi-Uda antenna for both directivity and input match using a global optimization technique.

Array Antenna, polarization, radiation pattern, stacking distance, UHF antenna, The addition of these waves bottom is increased in the forward direction, but leads to cancellation in the reverse direction.

The wave green from the driven element excites a current in the passive director which reradiates a wave blue having gagi particular phase shift see explanation in text. The antenna can be optimised to either reduce radiation in the reverse direction by altering the length and spacing of the reflector or it yahi be optimised to produce the maximum level of forward gain.

TV antennas are still a major application of the Yagi antenna. Geometry of Yagi-Uda antenna. Choose initial design parameters in the center of the VHF band [2].

Yagi Antenna | Yagi-Uda Aerial | Electronics Notes

Quagi antenna is a variation on vulnerable Yagi – Uda. 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. In this way the phase of the currents in elements that are shorter or longer are different.


These elaborate designs create electrical breaks along each element both sides at which point a parallel LC inductor and capacitor circuit is inserted. The reflector element is typically slightly longer than the feed element. The reflector element is slightly longer than the driven dipole, whereas the directors are a little shorter.

For low frequency antennas the physical size means that the maximum number of elements and hence the gain is much lower than 20dB. Abstract-A method of analyzing Yagi – Uda -type antennas is presented.

No portion can be reproduced except by permission of the author. The Yagi antenna design has a dipole as the main radiating or driven element to which power is applied directly from a feeder.

The above description is the basic idea of what is going on with the Yagi-Uda antenna.

To obtain a better insight into the behavior in the two orthogonal planes, plot the normalized magnitude of the electric field in the E and H-planes, i. 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 atop the hull — it was nicknamed the fliegendes Stachelschweinor “Flying Porcupine” by German airmen.

The director or directors are placed in front of antenx driven element, i.

This iterative analysis method is not a straightforward. Such a complete exact analysis considering all of the interactions mentioned is rather overwhelming, and approximations are inevitable on the path to finding a usable antenna.

Freq. [MHz]

The waves in the reverse direction interfere destructivelycancelling out, so the signal strength radiated in the reverse direction is small. Typical Yagi Uda antenna used for television reception Yagi antenna development Although the Yagi antenna is now widely used, it was only in the late s and early s when it started to be used. Rocket mount, so installation requires no special tools.

Abstract— This paper presents a simple broad band printed Yagi Uda antenna operating at a resonant frequency of MHz Click here to see To view all translated materials including this page, select Country from the country navigator on the bottom of this page. Yagi antenna design is done most antenaa via measurements, and sometimes computer simulations. Retrieved 4 July Yagi antenna, yagi-uda antenna. We can also solve for the voltage V 1 at the feedpoint of the driven element using the earlier equation:.

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.

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