Wireless Sensor Network, Energy Efficient Clustering Protocol, Load Balancing


To design a load balanced energy efficient network has been a major concern in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) since last many years. The load balancing energy-efficient clustering protocols are developed to attain the energy efficient network. But there was an issue related to the Cluster Head (CH) selection process. As the selected CH has to transmit the data to the sink node whether the node is located at a farther distance and this leads to the extra consumption of the energy by the current CH node. In order to overcome this, the novel approach is developed which is based on the multilayer architecture. The proposed method elects the CH and then a Leader node is elected from the volunteer nodes to gather the data from respective CH and then to transmit it to the base station. The simulation results depict that ILBEECP (Improved Load balanced energy Efficient Clustering protocol) outperforms the LBEECP (Load balanced energy Efficient Clustering protocol) in the terms of the dead node, alive nodes, residual energy, and energy consumption.
