Wireless sensor network is an emerging area having wide applicability and deployment in coming era. They can be used in different areas like industry, under water, health, etc. WSN is a network of sensor nodes, which can be used for sensing or collecting physical as well as environmental information. Each node in the WSN is battery powered, i.e. efficient energy management is more crucial issue in WSN. The energy dissipation of each and every node in the network will affect their lifetime, in turn it will affect the lifetime of the entire network.
