In contrast to the other antenna arrays ,the Yagi has only a single element that is connected to the transmitter, called the driver or driven element. The remaining elements are coupled to the driven element through its electromagnetic field . The other elements absorb some of the electromagnetic energy radiated by the driver and re-radiate it. The fields of the driver and the remaining elements sum up to produce a unidirectional pattern.
