Abstract

Reduced energy utilization is an exigent task for these sensor networks. In this paper hybrid energy efficient clustering algorithm for wireless sensor networks has been proposed, which mainly spotlights on reduction in energy utilization. It is a well distributed, energy efficient clustering algorithm which employs distributed relay nodes, adaptive transmission power and threshold-sensitive clustering mechanism for setting up the cluster. The proposed scheme is compared with the well-evaluated existing distributed clustering algorithms O-LEACH and HEED. Simulation results clearly depict an excellent advancement in remaining energy and throughput of the wireless sensor system. Simulation study also demonstrates an exceptional prolongation in network lifetime compared to the two existing clustering algorithms.

Keywords: wireless sensor network (WSN), distributed clustering, distributed relay node, adaptive transmission power, throughput, network lifetime
