For instance, let’s look at a two-element Yagi antenna 1 reflector, 1 feed element, 0 directors. The radio waves from each element 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.

There are no simple formulas for designing Yagi—Uda antennas due to the complex relationships between physical parameters such as. Just considering two such elements we can write the voltage at each feedpoint in terms of the currents using the mutual impedances Z ij:. 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.

This is the only member of the above structure that is actually excited a source voltage or current applied. All the other elements are considered parasitic. A Yagi—Uda antennacommonly known as a Yagi antennais a directional antenna consisting of multiple yabi-uda elements in a line, [1] usually half-wave dipoles made of metal rods.

This feed antenna is often altered in size to make it resonant in the presence of the parasitic elements typically, antennas. Yagi demonstrated a proof of conceptbut the engineering problems proved to be more onerous than conventional systems. The gain as a function of the separation is shown in Figure 2. TV antennas are still a major application of the Yagi antenna.


antdnas Yagi antenna, yagi-uda antenna. The first is that the larger the element is, the better of a physical reflector it becomes. 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. The Yagi antenna was invented in Japan, with results first published in Radio frequency antwnas types Antennas radio Radio electronics Japanese inventions Amateur radio.

The net effect of these two waves, when added bottom, leftis almost complete cancellation. Each element is of length Diand separated from the adjacent director by a length SDi.

This page was last ysgi-uda on 23 Novemberat We model element number j as having a feedpoint at the centre with a voltage V j and a current I j flowing into it.

In the next section, we’ll explain the principles of the Yagi-Uda antenna. Retrieved from ” https: The rest of the elements are parasitic – they reflect or help to transmit the energy in a particular direction. However these elements are not driven as such but receive their energy from the field created by the driven element, so we will find almost the opposite to be true.

Hence, even though the antenna is often called a Yagi antenna, Uda probably invented it. When questioned, the technician said it was an antenna named after a Japanese professor. Thus the directivity of the array indeed is in the direction towards the director.

John Wiley and Sons. 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. 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.


However the “Yagi” name has become more familiar with the name of Uda often omitted. The work was originally done by Shintaro Uda, but published in Japanese. The solution of the system then is as follows. The Yagi antenna consists of a single ‘feed’ or ‘driven’ element, typically a dipole or a folded dipole antenna.

Having the reflector slightly longer than resonant serves two purposes.

Yagi–Uda antenna

The Yagi-Uda antenna or Yagi Antenna is one of the most brilliant antenna designs. Now the difficult computation is in determining that mutual impedance Z 21 which requires a numerical solution. Typically, the first director will add approximately 3 dB of overall gain if designed wellthe second will add about 2 dB, the third about 1.

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. The reflector element is slightly longer than the driven dipole, whereas the directors are a little shorter.
