Hybrid Approach for Energy Optimization in Wireless Sensor Networks
In wireless sensor network the main issue is power consumption and lifetime of network. This can be achieved by selection of proper cluster heads in a cluster based protocol. In cluster based networks, the selection of cluster heads and its members is an essential process which affects energy consumption. A hybrid clustering approach is proposes to minimize the energy of the network so the life time of WSN can be increase. The cluster based firefly and ABC algorithm are implemented for energy optimization. Then by combining the concept of both algorithm forms a hybrid algorithm. Using this hybrid algorithm the energy of network can be saved and hence the life of network increased.Performance and analysis results approve that the proposed hybrid algorithm presents promising solutions on WSN routings.
