EEHCCP: An Energy-Efficient Hybrid Clustering Communication Protocol for Wireless Sensor Network

Part of the Lecture Notes of the Institute for Computer Sciences, Social Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering book series (LNICST,volume 223)

Abstract

Depending upon the application type, wireless sensor network has to work for months to years with a finite energy source. During this time, sensor nodes sense useful information from their surrounding and transmit it to the Base Station. Due to the sensor’s finite energy source, accumulation and transmission of sensed information in an energy efficient manner is very significant. Therefore, energy efficient communication protocols are a major research concern in a wireless sensor network to prolong the network lifetime. This paper presents an Energy-Efficient Hybrid Clustering Communication Protocol (EEHCCP). It is an improved LEACH protocol. It evenly distribute the energy load among all the sensor nodes. It uses a novel parameter average cluster-member energy (ACME) to delay the re-clustering time. The experimental results show the effectiveness of the proposed protocol over prominent Low Energy Adaptive Clustering Hierarchy (LEACH) and its descendant protocols in terms of network lifetime and energy consumption.
