Online Calculator Yagi Uda Antenna based on DL6WU

Retrieved 4 July The first is that the larger the element is, the better of a physical reflector it becomes. Retrieved 15 April In the next section, we’ll explain the yagi-yda of the Yagi-Uda antenna.

The element to the left of the feed element in Figure 1 antenaas the reflector. The wave generated by the driven element green propagates in both the forward and reverse directions as well as other directions, not shown.

Using the above relationships, then, we can solve for I 2 in terms of I This feed antenna yagi-udz often altered in size to make it resonant in the presence of the parasitic elements typically, 0.

Yagi–Uda antenna

Consider a Yagi—Uda consisting of a reflector, driven element and a single director as shown here. Institute of Electrical Engineers of Japan: 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.

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 direction. TV antennas are still a major application of the Yagi antenna. 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.


All the other elements are considered parasitic. As is well known in transmission line theory, a short circuit reflects all of the incident power degrees out of phase. The addition of these waves bottom is increased in the forward direction, but leads to cancellation in the reverse direction.

Gain versus separation for 2-element Yagi antenna. 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 combination of the director’s position and shorter length has thus obtained a unidirectional rather than the bidirectional response of the driven half-wave dipole element alone.

Adding an additional director always increases the gain; however, the gain in directivity decreases as the number of elements gets larger.

The Yagi-Uda Antenna – Yagi Antennas

This iterative analysis method is not a straightforward. 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 zntenas some constraints. 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 anteans, water and insect ingress.

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

Just considering two such elements we can write the voltage at each feedpoint in terms of the currents using the mutual impedances Z ij:. Hence, the current on the reflector lags the voltage induced on the reflector.

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 yzgi-uda. Since the so-called reflector, the longer parasitic element, has a current whose phase lags that of the driven element, one would expect the directivity to be in the direction of the reflector, opposite of the actual directional pattern of the Yagi—Uda antenna.

The above graph shows that the gain is increased by about 2. Consequently, these antennas are often empirical designs using an element of trial and erroroften starting with an existing design modified according to one’s hunch.

However the “Yagi” name has become more familiar with the name of Uda often omitted. Thus the directivity of the array indeed is in the direction towards the director.

The Yagi—Uda array in its basic form has very narrow bandwidth, 2—3 percent of the centre frequency. Now the difficult computation is in determining that mutual impedance Antena 21 which requires a numerical solution. Secondly, if the reflector is longer than its resonant length, the impedance of the reflector will be inductive.
