Retrieved 18 September A major drawback was the Yagi’s inherently narrow bandwidth. Using the above relationships, then, we can solve for I 2 in terms of I Until the development of the log-periodic antenna in the s, it was the only type of antenna that could give adequate fringe reception in areas far from the television transmitter.

Retrieved 4 July The Yagi was first widely used during World War II for airborne radar sets, because of its simplicity and directionality. Retrieved 11 September The gain as a function of the separation is shown in Figure 2.

Conveniently, the dipole parasitic elements have a node point of zero RF voltage at their centre, so they can be attached to a conductive metal support at that point without need of insulation, without disturbing their electrical operation. However the “Yagi” name has become more familiar with the name of Uda often omitted. Adding an additional director always increases the gain; however, the gain in directivity decreases as the number of elements gets ygai-uda.

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.

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

Yagi Antennas Design Parameters. Secondly, if the reflector is longer than its resonant length, the impedance of the reflector yagi-ua be inductive. The above description is the basic idea of what is going on with the Yagi-Uda antenna. Yagi antenna design is done most often via measurements, and sometimes computer simulations. It is simple to construct and has a high gaintypically greater than 10 dB. Wikimedia Commons has media related to Yagi-Uda antennas.

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 antebas.

This leads to the array being designated as a travelling wave antenna. These waves reach the first director element just as the crest of the wave angenas emitted from that element, and so on. Each element is of length Diand separated from the adjacent director by a length SDi.

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

Due to the differences in the elements’ lengths Z 11 and Z 22 have a substantially different reactive component.

Yagi–Uda antenna

Yagi demonstrated a proof of conceptbut the engineering problems proved to be more onerous than conventional systems. 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. The length of this element is given as R and the distance between the feed and the reflector is SR.

However, Yagi always acknowledged Uda’s sntenas contribution to the design, and the proper name for the antenna is, as above, the Yagi—Uda antenna or array. From Wikipedia, the zntenas encyclopedia. Gain versus separation for 2-element Yagi antenna. There is typically only one reflector; adding more reflectors improves performance very slightly. 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 Yagi-ura integral equation taking into account the other conductors.


This so-called trap has the effect of truncating the element at the higher frequency band, making it approximately a half wavelength in length.

Electronics industry in Ahtenas.

A Yagi—Uda antennacommonly known as a Yagi antenna atenas, is a directional antenna consisting of multiple parallel elements in a line, antens usually half-wave dipoles made of metal rods.

Retrieved from ” https: As is well known in transmission line theory, a short circuit reflects all of the incident power degrees out of phase. 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.

A picture of Professor Yagi with a Yagi-Uda antenna is shown below. Hence, the current on the reflector lags the voltage induced on the reflector. The length of the feed element is given in Figure 1 as F. 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. When questioned, the technician said it was an antenna named after a Japanese professor. This feed antenna is often altered in size to make it resonant in the presence of the parasitic elements typically, yati-uda.

The gain increases with the number of parasitic elements used.
