Energy Efficient Topology Control Approach for Mobile Ad hoc Networks

T.S.Asha and N.J.R.Muniraj

In MANET, energy consumption and network connectivity are the two very important issues. Due to the mobility of the nodes, the network partition occurs unlimitedly. To avoid this, several researches concentrated on this issue. But it is not focused on constantly. In this work, we developed Energy Efficient Topology Control Approach (EETCA) is developed to attain both network connectivity and energy consumption. It consists of three main parts. Network and Interference model is introduced to make sure the network connectivity. Energy based topology control is developed to ensure more energy efficiency. Here the power consumption is also determined and validated in each and every route. Energy level of node is equally maintained in both route discovery and route maintenance phase. Packet format of EETCA is proposed which consists of power consumption and link availability. If any link is broken more power consumption will be occupied. So the status of link availability is keep on monitoring during this phase. By using the extensive simulation results using Network Simulator (NS2), the proposed scheme EETCA achieves better network lifetime, packet delivery ratio, less overhead and end to end delay than the existing schemes like NCTC and DM.

Keywords: MANET, Interference, network connectivity, network lifetime, packet delivery ratio, end to end delay, overhead.
