As the use of wireless sensor networks is increasing day by day at the same time they are facing the problem of energy constraint in terms of limited battery life time. Network lifetime of system is directly related to energy dissipation in sensor nodes. Hence more energy dissipation results in decreasing network lifetime of sensor network. This paper concerns with investigation of energy efficiency and network lifetime of three routing protocols: LEACH, PEGASIS and Multi-chain PEGASIS; in wireless sensor network. This paper also concentrates on finding the most energy efficient protocol so that energy efficient protocol that have high network lifetime can be utilized in wireless sensor network.
