In MANET, energy consumption and network connectivity are the two very important issues. Due to the mobility of the nodes, the network partition occurs unlimitedly. To avoid this, several researches concentrated on this issue. But it is not focused on constantly. In this paper, the authors developed Energy Efficient Topology Control Approach (EETCA) is developed to attain both network connectivity and energy consumption. It consists of three main parts. Network and Interference model is introduced to make sure the network connectivity. Energy based topology control is developed to ensure more energy efficiency.
