Energy Consumption of Nodes under Variable Node Density in Mobile Ad-Hoc Network under Different Routing Protocols
In Mobile Ad-hoc Network (MANET), node density plays a vital role in a particular network. Energy consumption of node is a major issue of Mobile Adhoc Network as it decides the lifetime of the network. In MANET powerful battery with less discharge rate is an essential criterion. There are several mechanisms are investigated to conserve the energy of the battery by which nodes are operated. In this paper , we have investigated the effect of energy consumption by varying node density . In simulation work, we have taken an area of 1500mX1500m arranging nodes in grid pattern with 16, 25 and 36 nodes respectively in different Routing protocols. We have used QUALNET as simulation software in our experiments.
