On miniaturization of efficient ultrawideband printed quazi-Yagi antenna array for indoor applications

Abstract : This paper describes the design and analysis of a compact and efficient ultrawideband unidirectional printed antenna array for indoor applications.A12.2×6.3×1 cm antenna array is capable of covering an ultra-wide frequency band starting from LTE up to Wi-MAX with an average gain approaching 5 dBi over the entire bandwidth. In comparison with the already existing antenna systems in the wireless market for similar purposes, the proposed antenna has considerably better performance and supplementary compactness, which makes it competitive among other antenna models. Simulation results have also shown low cross polarization levels, where the sidelobe level was also minimized by introducing a special reflecting element in the designed model. Adopting the proposed antenna in indoor communication systems would surely enhance the quality of signal within the covered area as well as minimize the number of access points needed for a given network. © 2017, Allerton Press, Inc.
