Objective: Cluster analysis has been recognized as a key research topic in variety of fields including energy improvement. The main intend of this research is to maximize the lifetime of the network. Methods: In this manuscript, an Energy Efficient Clustering Protocol using Self Organizing Map (EECPSOM) in MANETs is designed. This application can cluster sensor nodes based on additional parameters such as energy levels and weight of sensor nodes. Self Organized Mapping (SOM) helps in forming clusters so that nodes with higher energy attract the nearest nodes with low energy levels. Results: The proposed method enables us to form energy balanced clusters and distribute the energy consumption in an equivalent manner. Conclusion: Simulation results prove that the proposed algorithm minimizes the use of energy and makes it energy efficient so that it can extend the lifetime of the network.
