Abstract

The Network life time is an important aspect in wireless sensor network (WSN). Due to its limited sensor node energy, it is important to optimize the energy of sensor Node for improving the life time of WSN. The Sensor Nodes mainly depend on the batteries for energy, which may get exhausted due to the computation and communication overhead and results in decreasing the network life time. Clustering plays very essential role in WSN as it increases the network life time and scalability. The aim of clustering is to gather the data in a systematic manner, so that network life time is enhanced. The selection of Cluster Head (CH) is done in the existing algorithms. The algorithms try to guarantee that the whole network stay alive for longer time which results in improving the overall performance of WSN in term of increasing the lifetime of sensor Node.
