Mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) are networks that have no centralized body and in order to communicate with the nodes it has no fixed topology. Also it is difficult to find the route from source to destination in MANETs, because of its arbitrary mobility of nodes and in general MANETs works on multihop environment to select a route from source to destination. For this a new scheme has been proposed that results in an efficient and reliable path named as Efficient Power Saving Adaptive Routing (EPSAR). In this paper we would apply some amendments to FRENSA and make a new algorithm that could make it more efficient and reliable enough and also apply it to three different scenarios like Best, Average and Worst case for selecting a path and can check the performance of the network and the complexity of selected route. In all the cases we would take some parameters that have been used in EPSAR and analyze the performance of this algorithm in all the cases.
