A Compact Efficient Yagi-Uda Patch Antenna with EBG Structure
Pages : 788-791
The paper describes a design of planar three-element Yagi-Uda antenna for 1-3 GHz band. The structure has been optimized for a maximum directivity and maximum gain and other performance parameter by include the air gap of 1.5cm and simulated by IE3D Software. This Yagi antenna consisted of the driven element, a reflecting element and a directing element. We measured the gain of the purposed antenna is 5.8dB.
Keywords: Yagi-Uda antenna, Directivity, Gain, Antenna Efficiency, Radiation Efficiency.
