In this work, we investigate the performance of heterogeneous stable election protocol (HetSEP) for prolonging the network lifetime. An order-5 heterogeneous energy network model is proposed in this work that can defines the order-1, order-2, order-3, order-4, and order-5 heterogeneity. We consider the SEP protocol to calculate the lifetime of the network and consequently describe its accomplishments as HetSEP-1, HetSEP-2, HetSEP-3, HetSEP-4, and HetSEP-5. The SEP protocol is HetSEP-1 in which all the sensor nodes have same amount of energy. The HetSEP-2, HetSEP-3, HetSEP-4, and HetSEP-5, contain two, three, four, and five orders of energy, respectively. The network lifetime increases as increasing the order of heterogeneity. The HetSEP-2, HetSEP-3, HetSEP-4, & HetSEP-5, prolong the lifetime of the network 100.39%, 126.12%, 186.56%, & 285.67%, in respect to the increase the energy of the network by 65.0%, 72.58%, 107.10%, & 208.40% with respect to the HetSEP-1.
