Mistry, Keyur, Lazaridis, Pavlos, Zaharis, Zaharias D., Xenos, Thomas D. and Glover, Ian (2018) Optimization of log-periodic dipole antenna with LTE band rejection. In: LAPC 2017, 13-14 November 2017, Loughborough, UK.

This study presents an optimized design of a 10-dipole logperiodic antenna for UHF TV reception with LTE band rejection. The simulation of the antenna was performed in CST simulation software followed by optimization of the design using TRF (Trusted Region Framework) algorithm in the frequency range of 450 MHz-900 MHz. The parameters optimized are S11, realized gain and front-to-back ratio of the antenna. TV reception passband is 450 MHz-790 MHz and LTE band is 810 MHz-900 MHz. The proposed antenna design provides a good matching with a low S11 in the passband (470 MHz-790 MHz) and a high S11 in the stopband (i.e. LTE region of 810 MHz-900 MHz). The antenna provides a realized gain between 7 dBi and 8 dBi whereas front-to back ratio above 14 dB in the passband.
