A full analysis of such a system requires computing the mutual impedances between the dipole elements [11] which implicitly takes into account the propagation delay due to the finite spacing between elements.

The first is that the larger the element is, the better of a physical reflector it becomes.

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.

Each element is of length Diand separated from the adjacent director by antnas length SDi.

Freq. [MHz]

tagi-uda 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.

The gain as a function of the separation is shown in Figure 2. The above graph shows that the gain is increased by about 2. Thus the antenna radiates a unidirectional beam of radio waves from the front director end of the antenna. This is the current induced in the parasitic element due to the current I 1 in the driven element.

The waves from the multiple elements superpose and interfere to enhance radiation in a single direction, achieving a very substantial increase in the antenna’s gain compared to a simple dipole. After World War 2, the advent of television broadcasting motivated extensive development of the Yagi—Uda antenna as a rooftop television reception antenna in the VHF jagi-uda UHF bands, and to a lesser extent an FM radio antenna.

Yagi published the first English-language reference on the antenna in a yati-uda article on short wave research in Japan and it came to be associated with his name.

One must take into account an additional phase delay due to the finite distance between the elements which further delays the phase of the currents in both the directors and reflector s.

How the antenna works. Hence, the current on the reflector lags the voltage induced on the reflector. The rest of the elements are parasitic – they reflect or help to transmit the energy in a particular direction. This element is important in determining the front-to-back ratio aygi-uda the antenna.

Retrieved 11 September The use of traps is not without disadvantages, however, as they reduce the bandwidth of the antenna on the individual bands and reduce the antenna’s electrical efficiency and subject the antenna to additional mechanical considerations wind loading, water and insect ingress. The addition of these waves bottom is increased in the forward direction, but leads to cancellation in the reverse direction. Due to the differences in the elements’ jagi-uda Z 11 and Z 22 have a substantially different reactive component.

The Yagi—Uda antenna consists of a number of parallel thin rod elements in a line, usually half-wave long, typically supported on a perpendicular crossbar or “boom” along their centers.

Using the above relationships, then, we can solve for I 2 in terms of I For instance, if there are 8 directors, sntenas another director is added, the increases in gain will anfenas less than 0. The case 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. The gain increases with the number of parasitic elements used.

The radio waves from each element are emitted with a phase delay, so that the individual waves jagi-uda in the forward direction up are in phase, while the waves in the reverse direction are out of phase.

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 In the next section on Yagis, I’ll go further into the design of Yagi-Uda antennas. Let the driven element be designated 1 so that V 1 and I 1 are the voltage and current supplied by the transmitter.

An example of a Yagi-Uda antenna is shown below. Adding an additional director always increases the gain; however, the gain in directivity decreases as the number of elements gets larger. This so-called trap has the effect of truncating the element at the higher frequency band, making it approximately a half wavelength in length. 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.


That is, they reradiate power which they receive from the driven element they yag-iuda interact with each other. The current distribution along a real antenna element is only approximately given by the usual antenqs of a classical standing wave, requiring a solution of Hallen’s integral equation taking into account the other conductors.

Institute of Electrical Engineers of Japan: 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.

Yagi–Uda antenna – Wikipedia

Yagi antenna design is done most often via measurements, and sometimes computer simulations. This would tend to cancel the radiation of the driven element. The wave generated by the driven element green propagates in both the forward and reverse directions as well as other directions, not shown.

And now knowing the phase and amplitude of I 2 in relation to I 1 as computed above allows us to determine the radiation pattern gain as a function of direction due to the currents flowing in these two elements. Yagi—Uda antennas used for amateur radio are sometimes designed to operate on multiple bands. There is typically only one reflector; adding more reflectors improves performance very slightly.

For instance, let’s look at a two-element Yagi antenna 1 reflector, 1 feed element, 0 directors. Modern Dictionary of Electronics 7 ed. Just considering two such elements we can write the voltage at each feedpoint in terms of the currents using anetnas mutual impedances Z ij:.

It is simple to construct and has a high gaintypically greater than 10 dB. Electronics industry in Japan.
