Wireless sensor networks are equipped to handle more complex functions. In a network processing may require these battery powered sensor to judiciously use their constrained energy to prolong the effective network life time especially in a heterogeneous settings. Nodes are organized into clusters and in each cluster all non-cluster nodes transmit their data only to the cluster-head. Because of energy limitation in sensor nodes are energy reduction in each data transmission; appropriate cluster-head election can significantly reduce energy consumption and enhance the life of the network.
