A Hybrid Model for Accurate Energy Analysis of WSN Nodes
Energy modeling is an important issue for designing and dimensioning low power Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN). In order to help the developers to optimize the energy spent by WSN nodes, a pragmatic and precise hybrid energy model is proposed. This model considers different scenarios that occur during the communication and evaluates their energy consumption based on software profiling as well as the hardware components power profiles. The proposed model is a combination of analytical derivations and real time measurements.
