Energy Management in Zone Routing Protocol (ZRP)

Ad hoc networks are wireless networks without a fixed infrastructure, and are usually established on a temporary basis for a specific application like emergency rescue or battle field communication. Energy management in wireless networks deals with the process of managing energy resources by means of controlling the battery discharge, adjusting the transmission power, and scheduling of power sources so as to increase the lifetime of the nodes of an ad hoc wireless network. Since, most of the mobile nodes in the network are equipped with low power batteries, it could be difficult for a mobile device to sustain for a long time if it send and receive data more often.
