Yagi–Uda antenna

The directors are slightly shorter than the driven element, while the reflector s are slightly longer. Vertically polarized arrays can be seen on the cheeks of the P and on the nose cones of many WWII aircraft, notably the Lichtenstein radar -equipped examples of the German Junkers Ju 88 R-1 fighter-bomberand the British Bristol Beaufighter night-fighter and Short Sunderland flying-boat.

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 Japanese military authorities first became aware of this technology after the Battle of Singapore when they captured the notes of a British radar technician that mentioned “yagi antenna”. It is simple to construct and has a high gaintypically greater than 10 dB. Curves Re and Im are the resistive and reactive parts of the mutual impedance. 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.

Wikimedia Commons has media related to Yagi-Uda antennas. The Yagi—Uda array in its basic form has very narrow bandwidth, 2—3 percent of the centre frequency.

The gain as a function of the separation is shown in Figure 2. Let the driven element be designated 1 so that V 1 and I 1 are the voltage and current supplied by the transmitter. This is the only member of the above structure that is actually excited a source voltage or current applied. When questioned, the technician said it was an antenna named after a Japanese professor. This page was last edited on 23 Novemberat Conveniently, the dipole parasitic elements have a ahtenas 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.


After World War 2, the advent of television broadcasting motivated extensive development of the Yagi—Uda antenna as a rooftop yaagi-uda reception antenna in the VHF and UHF bands, and to a lesser extent an FM radio antenna. Thus the antenna radiates a unidirectional beam of radio waves from the front director yabi-uda of the antenna. antenax

However these elements are not driven as such but receive their zntenas from the field created by the driven element, so we will find almost the opposite to be true. So one could as well model the operation of the parasitic element yabi-uda 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.

Commons category link is on Wikidata. A picture of Professor Yagi with a Yagi-Uda antenna is shown below. As alluded to in the previous paragraph, the lengths of the directors are typically less than the resonant length, which encourages wave propagation in the direction of the directors. Retrieved from ” https: 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 rest of the elements are parasitic – they reflect or help to transmit the energy in a particular direction.

John Wiley and Sons. The gain increases with the number of parasitic elements used. 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. We can also solve for the voltage V 1 at the feedpoint of the driven element using the earlier equation:.

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.

By adjusting the distance between the adjacent directors it is possible to reduce the back lobe of the yzgi-uda pattern.

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. Very complicated Yagi designs were developed to give adequate gain over the broad television bands. 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.


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 yagi-udw finite spacing between elements.

Freq. [MHz]

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 wave generated by the driven element green propagates in both the forward and reverse directions as well as other directions, not shown. The Yagi was first widely used during World War II atenas airborne radar sets, because of its simplicity and directionality. Having the reflector slightly longer yag-uda resonant serves two purposes. The length of the feed element is given in Figure 1 as F.

Yagi Antennas Design Parameters. Popular Mechanicspp. In the next section, we’ll explain the principles of yagi-kda Yagi-Uda antenna. At other angles, the power emitted is intermediate between the two extremes.

The Yagi antenna consists of a single ‘feed’ or ‘driven’ element, typically a dipole or a folded dipole antenna. The director elements those to the right of the feed in Figure 1 will be shorter than resonant, making them capacitive, so that the current leads the voltage.

These waves reach the first director element just as antfnas crest of the wave is emitted from that element, and so on. The waves in the reverse direction interfere destructivelycancelling out, so the signal strength radiated in the reverse direction is small. This iterative analysis method is not a straightforward.

Retrieved 18 September 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. The Yagi antenna was invented in Japan, with results first published in
