  • Extending the lifetime of WSNs with Maximum Energy Selection Algorithm (MESA) 

    The limited battery supply of a sensor node is one of the most important factors that limit the lifetime of the WSNs. As a consequence increasing the lifetime of WSNs through energy efficient mechanisms has become a challenging research area. Previous studies have shown that instead of implementing direct transmission or multi-hop routing clustering can significantly improve the total energy dissipation and lifetime of a WSN. The traditional LEACH and LEACH based algorithms have evolved from this ...

    Authors:Cengiz, Korhan; Daǧ, Tamer
    Publisher and Date:(IEEE, 2015)
    Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have become an important part of our lives as they can be used in vast application areas from disaster relief to health care. As a consequence the life span and the energy consumption of a WSN has become a challenging research area. According to the existing studies instead of using direct transmission or multi-hop routing clustering can significantly reduce the energy consumption of sensor nodes and can prolong the lifetime of a WSN. In this paper we propose a low ...

  • Multi-Hop Low Energy Fixed Clustering Algorithm (M-LEFCA) for WSNs 

    Authors:Cengiz, Korhan; Daǧ, Tamer
    Publisher and Date:(IEEE, 2016)
    The limited battery supply of sensor nodes is one of the most important factors which restrict the lifetime of the wireless sensor networks (WSNs). As a consequence the wide deployment of WSNs in the recent years led to the necessity of extending the lifetime through energy efficient mechanisms. Previous studies have shown that instead of implementing direct transmission in a WSN field to collect data clustering can significantly improve the energy-efficiency and thus the lifetime. The traditional ...

  • Nearest Fixed Clustering Algorithm (NFCA) for Wireless Sensor Networks 

    The objective of reducing energy consumption at the sensor nodes has become a key research area for wireless sensor networks (WSNs) in recent years. With the steady increase in the cost of energy the existing algorithms and protocols need to be redeveloped. In this paper an energy-efficient routing protocol which forms fixed clusters is proposed. The new cluster head (CH) selections are made based on selecting nearest nodes to the current CH. The proposed protocol includes two phases to achieve ...
