The Generalized Nets (GN) approach is an advanced way of parallel processes modeling and analysis of complex systems as Large-scale Wireless Sensor Networks (LWSN). The LWSN such as meteorological and air quality monitoring systems could generate a large amount of data that can reach petabytes per year. The sensor data-parallel processing is one of the possible solutions to reduce inter-node communication to save energy. At the same time, the on-site parallel processing requires additional energy, needed for computational data processing. Therefore, the development of a realistic model of the process is critical for the optimization analysis of every large scale sensor network.

In the proposed paper, a new developed GN based model of a sensor nodes data-parallel processing of LWSN with cluster topology is presented. The proposed model covers all the aspects of the inter-node sensor data integration and the cluster-based parallel processes specific for large scale amounts of sensor data operations.
