Energy Efficient Hierarchical Unequal Clustering in Wireless Sensor Networks

Received Date:02 February 2014, Accepted Date:22 February 2014, Published Date:03 March 2014


Energy efficient modeling is a major issue in the wireless sensor network. The main solution for energy efficient routing is by means of clustering. This paper proposes an unequal clustering approach in the networks for even energy distribution. It also reduces the overall energy consumption which in turn improves the network lifetime. The simulation is carried out in MATLABR2010a. The energy needed for entire operations for one round using the proposed method is lesser than that of LEACH, an equal clustering methodology.
