Regarding to mobile ad hoc network characteristics which all mobile nodes of network connect to each other via wireless, one of the important aspects of this type of network is the limitation of amount of available energy in the network nodes that is the most critical factor in the operation of these networks. And the tremendous amount of using the mobile nodes in wireless communication medium makes Energy Efficiency (EE) a fundamental requirement for mobile ad hoc networks.
