Enhanced Stable Period for Two Level and Multilevel Heterogeneous Model for Distant Base Station in Wireless Sensor Network

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 379)


In last decade, Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) has gained popularity because of its little or no infrastructure-based network communication. The key concerned in WSN is energy optimization. Several researches are being carried out focusing on the parameters that affect the energy of the network. Introduction of heterogeneity enhances the network lifetime. In this paper, we propose a heterogeneity-based energy efficient clustering scheme for distant base station. In this protocol, cluster head selection is based on localized parameters of the node. The proposed work is simulated for two level and multilevel heterogeneous energy model. Simulation results validate the extended stability of proposed work. The proposed protocol remarkably outperforms SEP and DEEC.
