Abstract:


Background: In a Wireless Sensor Network, one of the important issues is minimizing energy consumption without losing accuracy during data transmission. Communication must be released in an optimized way, which enhances energy efficiency in the networks.

Methods: By applying various techniques especially node balance set, the network lifetime is increased and delay is minimized. To accomplish node balance set, Cluster Head (CH) determination mechanism is implemented and clustering based load balanced is established. Further, the enactment of the anticipated designs is established through simulations in the circumstance of scalable data transmission in a WSN.

Results & Conclusion: Hypothetical study and experimental simulations are studied by various performance evaluation metrics namely clock offset, number of transmitted messages, delayed messages and Residual Energy. The results confirm that clustering with node balance set saves more energy in WSN and also it reduces synchronization errors.
