Wireless sensor network contains a number of tiny sensors to get data from the surface where it deployed. Clustering is done to increase energy of the node to some certain period. Enhanced network lifetime is an important task to be achieved by these sensor networks. In this paper, a procedure for evaluation of clustering efficiency, routing efficiency, energy efficiency and lifetime of two impenetrable wireless sensor network fields, using a distributed clustering approach, the hybrid energy efficient clustering algorithm has been proposed, which targets mainly on effectively prolonging the lifetime of wireless sensor networks. It is a well-distributed and energy-efficient clustering algorithm which employs three novel techniques: zone based transmission power, routing by means of distributed relay nodes and rapid cluster formation. The clustering process is effectively controlled, thus the number of cluster heads selection and the number of packets delivered to the base station is also found to be effective.
