Advances and progress in wireless communication made it possible to develop Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) which has emerged as an important computing platform in the recent few years. In WSN, battery is the only source for providing energy to the sensor nodes; which makes them to work in different environment. WSN consumes a lot of energy for sensing, processing, storing and communicating the data with the sink. Replacement of batteries that are drained or depleted of energy is undesirable in certain cases like surveillance applications or in military applications.
