The paper gives a detailed study of a well known energy efficient routing protocol called Hybrid Energy Efficient Distributed (HEED), in the field of Wireless Sensor Networks. The protocol is based on the concept of clustering. First of all, the main technique of HEED protocol has been explained. Further, we have observed and analysed the effects of changes made on certain parameters like, number of sensor nodes in the network, the network area and the position of sink or the base station. Based on all these, graphs have been plotted to show the effect on the network lifetime and the number of cluster heads in the network.
