A New Method for Network Lifetime Maximization in Wireless Sensor Network

Dhaval J. Rana, Nirav M. Raja


A wireless sensor network (WSN) consists of number of autonomous sensors nodes to monitor environmental conditions and to cooperatively pass their data through the network to a main location.  WSN is an application of MANET. Sensor nodes in WSN have limited storage capacity, limited processing capability, and limited battery power. The lifetime of the WSN depends upon the available battery power and generally this battery power is non-rechargeable. When the battery of the nodes get empty they will directly eliminated from the network operation.

In this Paper we are providing one scheme which is combination of various different schemes and integrating it with the AODV routing algorithm .Our proposed scheme uses AODV algorithm with the Threshold value based scheme, Average energy value based scheme and Max of Min energy scheme. This scheme will always select the best path to transmit maximum numbers of packets with maximizing the lifetime of the network. In this scheme we will first do the energy estimation and apply threshold value based scheme followed by the average energy value scheme and max of min energy value scheme for selection of best path with maximized lifetime. Our proposed scheme will always give the best results than these three methods by combining the advantages of all the schemes and maximizes the network lifetime.
