Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks (MANETs) consist of a collection of wireless mobile nodes which dynamically exchange data among themselves without the need of fixed infrastructure or a wired backbone network. Energy consumption in MANET is one of the important issues in this paper. Reliable data delivery in MANET consumes lot of energy. The efficient node-energy consumption in wireless ad hoc networks is essential as ad-hoc nodes operate with limited battery power. Routing protocol scheme for wireless networks are support by two essential requirements, minimize energy metrics or maximize network throughput.
