Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) become an emerging field for human developments. In this field, the more number of researches is still under processing. Sensors are grouped to generate clusters to collect and forward the data using Cluster Head (CH). In this work, the traditional LEACH protocol is chosen for observation. Cluster formation is considered for this scheme. The proposed model introduces the threshold energy and power amplification metrics which add together with the LEACH’s probability function. The Novel scheme identifies the purpose of the proposed metrics and compared with some of the existing modified LEACH schemes. The comparison is processed using simulation, and the results show the proposed scheme shows betterment.
