Clustering is a process to subdivide the sensing field of sensor network into number of clusters. Each cluster selects a leader called cluster head. A cluster head may be elected by the sensor node in the cluster or pre assigned by the network designer. Optimized Clustering can save lot of energy in the network. In our paper we have surveyed various clustering protocols for wireless sensor networks and compared on various parameters. The performance of the IEEE 802.11 MAC protocol has been shown to degrade considerably in an ad hoc network with nodes that transmit at heterogeneous power levels. We conclude that the schemes together offer a simple yet effective and viable means of performing medium access control and QOS scheduling techniques in heterogeneous networks.
