Energy is a very crucial parameter in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks since mobile nodes are operated with this scarce resource. If nodes battery is drained, then ongoing transmission in the network is disrupted and discontinued. Mobile nodes can communicate with each other directly or multi-hop fashion. A mobile node uses battery power while working in various modes, i.e., transmitting, receiving, idle, and sleep. Routing protocols, MAC layer, and other network layers exchanges various control packets for executing their task. Overall, performance of the network indirectly depends on the battery power. So, wisely utilizing battery of individual nodes may significantly increase the network performance and lifetime. We have studied the energy utilization of individual node in the network. We have used AODV routing protocol for the analysis of individual node energy utilization in different mode of their operation. Finally, we observed that in receiving mode nodes average energy consumption is higher as compared to transmit mode operation.
