An ad-hoc network is an infrastructure less wireless network consisting of mobile moving nodes. In a network each mobile node acts as a router as well as packet forwarder. Nodes in a Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) have limited battery power. Power consumption of network interfaces can be significant. In a MANET, if a mobile node continuously transmitting the data packets, more battery power consumed by that node, obviously that node energy level is insufficient for data packet transmission and becomes critical node or dead node and result is connection failure in network. When a distance is increased between mobile nodes in same MANET, those mobile nodes consumed more power for the data packet transmission.
