—The energy efficiency is the determinant aspect of the wireless sensor network life time. Various routing protocols are used to reduce the energy consumption and to improve the network lifetime. To support high scalability and better data aggregation, sensor nodes are often grouped into disjoint, non overlapping subsets called clusters. Clusters create hierarchical WSNs which incorporate efficient utilization of limited resources of sensor nodes and thus extends network lifetime. This paper discusses an improved clustering protocol to minimize the energy consumption and maximize the network life-time. The simulation results show that the proposed algorithm reduces the overall energy consumption and improves the lifetime over its comparatives.
