Wireless microsensor systems will facilitate the reliable monitoring of a variety of environments for several applications like as civil and military. In this paper, we look at modified LEACH protocol. This paper presents a new approach to clustering wireless sensor networks and determining cluster heads. LEACH is a hierarchical cluster algorithm in which Cluster-Heads are randomly selected from the nodes. Here, I apply new approach for selection of Cluster-Head according to their initial and residual energy of all the nodes and according to their initial and residual energy nodes are eligible for cluster head in the next round. Results of new approach of LEACH protocol compared with Conventional routing protocol.
