A Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) is a collection of mobile nodes which are able to organize by themselves. Various properties like dynamic nature, random topology, limited battery make MANET's protocols different from other routing protocols. In MANET's QoS provision in terms of bandwidth, delay, throughput is a difficult task. In this paper, the authors study the problem of providing QoS along with maximizing the network life and increasing the throughput by balancing the energy consumption. This paper tries to find out a solution for the above cited problems. Here, in this paper they are presenting a new algorithm "QoS Enabled Power Aware Routing Protocol (QEPAR)" to provide an optimal path with suitable bandwidth and battery capacity.
