What are the parasitic elements in Yagi Uda antenna?. I just couldn't find where it is from the diagram of Yagi uda antenna. I can locate the driven elements and the reflector but I couldn't locate the parasitic element.


Could you please help me?


Thanks in advance.

director(s) and reflector(s)

How do they contribute to capacitance and inductance?

I would be really happy if you could provide me some link where they explain in detail about Yagi Uda Antenna because the book that I am having didn't explain much about Yagi Uda Antenna.

Over the past weeks, a few people have posted questions in this forum about equivalent circuits of antennas.

This does not make much sense to me. The equivalent circuits consist of lumped elements, whereas an antenna is a distributed, radiating structure. Thinking in terms of lumped L,C makes it really difficult to understand antennas.

I think you might have also misunderstood the word "parasitic element" here.
