Abstract

It is important to prolong the network lifetime in Wireless Sensor Networks. There are two approaches to increase the network lifetime, which are balancing energy consumption and reducing the number of non-working nodes. This paper presents two Cluster head Selection algorithms, one is based on Ensuring target Area and the other is based on Affinity Propagation. We propose a method which makes the energy uniformly distributed throughout the network nodes. In particular, we analyse the effect of the powerful nodes on the network lifetime and cluster characteristics. Simulation results show that the two proposed algorithms distribute non-working nodes evenly, such that the target area is well covered by the remaining nodes. Our proposed algorithms balance the traffic load and energy distributions, and prolong the network lifetime effectively compared with the existing schemes
