Due to the big and essential role played by the cluster head in hierarchical protocols of wireless sensor network, it consumes an amount of energy more than the member nodes of the cluster. Therefore, the hierarchical protocols usually suffer from a packet loss due to frequent cluster head failure during the data transmission. This decreases the communication reliability in wireless sensor network applications. Errors caused by data loss inevitably affect the data analysis and subsequent decision making.
