Abstract: Energy Efficient are one of the most practical solutions in order to handle with the requirements of large-scale wireless sensor networks (WSN). Energy consumption is one of the basic problem of WSNs. In this paper we have compare the performance of (DEEC) Distributed Energy Efficient routing protocol in terms of energy consumption, alive nodes, and packet transmission .We propose a new approach to exploit efficiently the network energy, by increasing the network lifetime. We have used a clustering technique so that the energy consumption of the network decreases, packet transmission increases and alive nodes increases. Simulation results reveal that the lifetime of proposed algorithm is 40% longer than DEEC and shows the no of packets transmission increases as compare to DEEC.
