Based on the analysis on the defect in LEACH including the fluctuation of the number of cluster heads and the ignorance of the node's residual energy, this paper presents a novel protocol called LEACH-B (LEACH-Balanced).At each round, after first selection of cluster head according to LEACH protocol, a second selection is introduced to modify the number of cluster head in consideration of node's residual energy. As a result the number of cluster head is constant and near optimal per round. The… CONTINUE READING
