In this paper, the authors introduce comparative study of different LEACH algorithm for reducing energy consumption in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). For this purpose, they are using various LEACH algorithms such as random LEACH, max energy LEACH and K-means LEACH. In these algorithms the election of Cluster Heads (CHs) is based mainly on the identity of nodes, the degree of connectivity or the connected dominating set. In case of WSNs, the main objective of clustering protocols is to minimize energy consumption by the network in order to extend the network lifetime.
