LEACH protocol is considered the best in the WSN protocols in extending the network lifetime and reduces energy loss, but LEACH suffers from the problem of the correct distribution of the nodes correlation with CHs. In this paper, we propose an improved protocol called LEACH-Z(LEACH zones), this protocol improves the distribution of clusters by making the clusters near the base station(BS) large(greater number of nodes) and the clusters are far from BS small(lesser number of nodes), where divides the network area to parts(zones), be part of a larger when close to the BS in addition to preventing the election of CHs in the region far from the BS and thus conserve energy this means that the nodes will remain alive as long as possible, this makes nodes gather more information. The results proved that the LEACH-Z is better than the original LEACH and more optimizations to reduce energy consumption.

Prolong the Lifetime of WSN by Determining a Correlation Nodes in the Same Zone and Searching for the "Best" not the "Closest" C.H.

There were a lot of methods that introduced in the information search field; one of those methods is the wireless sensor networks; and one of the most famous protocols in WSNs is LEACH protocol. And because of that protocol suffering from some defects like sometimes the node attaching to C.H. near from it, but that C.H. far from the B.S. even the node itself near to the B.S. than its C.H.; to solve that problem a new method will introduce in this research which basing on:

.Allocation of 5 meters (0-5) and prevent the election of any C.H. on it.
.Division of the Network area into four parts (near, mid, far, and very far) according to the node`s distance from B.S.
.Restriction of the attachment between the nodes and the C.Hs. in the same part.
.If a particular part is empty from the C.H. so the nodes will attach to C.H. from the upper parts, But with a condition (the distance between the C.H. and the node <= the distance between node and B.S. /2)

Through these improvements, good results were gotten in the simulation, which showed that the improved LEACH was more efficient than the original LEACH.
