DEHCA: Load Balance Clustering Algorithm for Energy Heterogeneous WSN Based on Distance
Considering the characteristics of energy heterogeneous and the requirement of load balance in Wireless Sensor Network (WSN), a novel clustering routing, DEHCA was presented for energy heterogeneous WSN (EHWSN). Based on Node Distance in EHWSN, new concepts as Residual Energy, Energy Consumption Rate, Centroid Superiority, and Cluster Head Carrier Capacity, were introduced to weigh the selection of cluster head and realize the energy heterogeneous load balance. Simulation shows that load balance clustering routing for EHWSN based on distance could better prolong the stability period and enhance the load balance capacity.
