Wireless Sensor Networks comprise huge number of sensor nodes which collect facts from the backgrounds of environment where these nodules are fixed or prescribed in random manner. WSN is an energy built structure in which recognizing and communicating of data involves an enormous volume of energy. These sensor nodes are to be arrayed in a strict environment, there is a huge possibility that some of these nodes may get damaged and fail to work, in result these sensor nodes are proficient of sensing data till the energy remains inside them. Hence to diminish the intake of energy by the sensor nodes is the main aspect of the sensor networks. For the energy efficiency of network, there are many energy efficient protocols like LEACH, RZLEACH. They prolong the network lifetime and reduce the energy consumption. This paper has focused on the energy efficient protocol of WSN. LEACH, RZLEACH has been considered for evaluation purpose. The overall objective is to find the best protocol among LEACH, RZLEACH.

Abstract


Wireless Sensor Networks comprise huge number of sensor nodes which collect facts from the backgrounds of environment where these nodules are fixed or prescribed in random manner. WSN is an energy built structure in which recognizing and communicating of data involves an enormous volume of energy. These sensor nodes are to be arrayed in a strict environment, there is a huge possibility that some of these nodes may get damaged and fail to work, in result these sensor nodes are proficient of sensing data till the energy remains inside them. Hence to diminish the intake of energy by the sensor nodes is the main aspect of the sensor networks. For the energy efficiency of network, there are many energy efficient protocols like LEACH, RZLEACH. They prolong the network lifetime and reduce the energy consumption. This paper has focused on the energy efficient protocol of WSN. LEACH, RZLEACH has been considered for evaluation purpose. The overall objective is to find the best protocol among LEACH, RZLEACH. The experiment has been done using MATLAB tool along with help of data analysis tool box. The experiment result has shown that the RZLEACH outperforms over available protocols.
