MANET is a very important field in wireless networks to research upon. MANET does not require any centralized administration. MANETs do not have any fixed infrastructure. MANETs have various applications like battle field communication, emergency relief etc. But there are several issues in MANET which directly hampers power efficiency. MANETs with high power nodes can improve network lifetime, scalability, connectivity and robustness. However the power heterogenousity in MANET affects the throughput severely. To improve power efficiency in MANETs, here, the authors have developed Dynamic Loose Virtual Clustering algorithm (DLVC).
