The main emphasis of this paper is to analyze and assess the performance of various techniques in the effort to determine the maximum lifetime of the nodes & minimization of delay. This paper mainly concentrate about the two performance metrics parameter which is important to make the WSN as effective as possible i.e. maximization of network lifetime parameter and minimization of delay for the Wireless Sensor Network. Due to energy limitation of sensors, maximization of lifetime is the key to performance of WSN routing protocol. In such systems mostly energy is consumed when communication radios are on. So sleep-wake scheduling is effective mechanism to increase network lifetime.
