In the field of structural health monitoring using wireless sensors, considerable research attention has been recently given to vibration-based energy harvesting devices for exploring their feasibility as a power source of a wireless sensor node. Most of the previous studies have focused on lab-scale tests for performance validation. For real application, however, field tests on developed energy harvesting devices should be conducted, because their performance may be considerably affected by change in the testing environment. In this study, a new electromagnetic energy harvester is proposed, which is more suitable for civil engineering application, and the preliminary field test on a real cable-stayed bridge are conducted to validate its effectiveness.
