This paper introduces a modeling approach to the design and evaluation of large wireless sensor networks against the topology of the network and the monitoring application and taking into account the performance degradation due to the power consumption. The model is built by composing Stochastic Activity Network (SAN) models of the nodes and a Markovian Agent Model (MAM) of the whole network. The SAN models are used to conduct a performance analysis of the nodes (i.e. to measure their sampling… CONTINUE READING
