Approximate representations for current and charge distributions along each dipole of a log-periodic dipole antenna are derived. The special mathematical forms assumed by these representations are chosen to be particularly compatible with the set of integral equations that the representations must satisfy. An attractive attributes is their ability to handle the rapid variations in charge that often exist near the driving points and ends of the dipole elements. This ability to accurately predict how charges are distributed can be essential to precise estimates of the maximum voltage gradient on the antenna, and is critically important when the antenna is to be designed for high-power applications.
