A New Design of Log-Periodic Dipole Array (LPDA) Antenna



This paper presents a new approach for design of the log-periodic dipole array antenna (LPDA) based on using of different design parameters in the LPDA elements to control the antenna behavior. In the proposed procedure, the design parameters can control the value of forward gain over the operating frequency range, and also adjust the gain flatness. Furthermore, this design procedure can decrease the LPDA dimensions in compared to the conventional design. Based on the proposed design method, several LPDA antennas are designed and simulated numerically by the method of moment. The simulation results show that this LPDA design procedure can be a good candidate for design of optimized antenna in different frequency band.
