Abstract

A sensor may be deployed in open space, in the interior of Industrial machinery, at the bottom of water body, in a commercial building, in a home or in a human Body. It is not possible to recharge the batteries in all environments and hence life time of a sensor is very crucial. So to increase the life time, the sensors are grouped in clusters and information is exchanged with the base station via cluster head. An energy efficient supporting cluster head selection algorithm is required to increase the life time of wireless sensor network. The traditional LEACH protocol selects the cluster head by random time which may select low energy sensor as cluster head. In this paper, the cluster head selection is based on energy variable and supporting cluster head node.
