Internet of things (IoT) is the wireless network of physical devices that are capable of sensing the environment. In order to prolong the network lifetime of the IoT nodes called sensor nodes, an effective energy consumption protocols to adapt the wireless sensor network. This paper explores in depth the energy harvesting techniques, and proposes a cluster algorithm with energy harvesting technique to improve energy and throughput of the network. The proposed algorithm implements the creation of clusters with cluster-head selection protocol and we have reduced the number of iteration required for electing the cluster head. HEED algorithm has been enhanced with an energy harvesting algorithm using wireless charging technique. Proposed algorithm is to select the appropriate channel in the multi-channel system. Simulation results shows that the proposed algorithm has better adaptability to ubiquitous environments than existing clustering algorithm in prolonging the network lifetime.
