Adaptive Mobile Sink for Energy Efficient WSN Using Biogeography-Based Optimization
The proposed solution addresses the problem of excessive data-based energy efficiency in mobile Sink design and also addresses biogeography-based optimization. Expand
Optimizing and Enhancing the Lifetime of a Wireless Sensor Network Using Biogeography Based Optimization
This work proposes a new nature-inspired technique Biography based optimization for energy efficient clustering (BBO-C) in a WSN which takes into account novel parameters like minimization of Cluster Head (CH) energy dissipation and the transmission distance between both sensor nodes to CH and sink to CH which results in better distribution of sensors and a well-balanced clustering system, thus enhancing the network lifetime of a W SN.

A novel load balanced energy conservation approach in WSN using biogeography based optimization
A novel load balancing approach using biogeography based optimization (LB-BBO) uses two separate fitness functions to perform load balancing of equal and unequal load respectively and shows better performance than previous works implemented for energy conservation in WSN. Expand
Performability of solar thermal power plant under reliability characteristics
A probabilistic model of the solar thermal power plant with the help of Markov process has been developed through considering some assumptions, and consists of three possible states: good, degraded and completely failed state. Expand
A Self-Configurable Event Coverage Approach for Wireless Sensor Networks
The authors propose an event-based efficient deployment of sensors, and the proposed methodologies and results are compared to previous studies. Expand
A Binary PSO Approach for Improving the Performance of Wireless Sensor Networks
This paper proposes a novel particle update strategy and an efficient linear transfer function which outperform previously employed particle update strategies and some traditional transfer functions and suggests that Binary PSO is better equipped to solve discrete problems of routing and clustering than its continuous counterpart, PSO.
