Wireless sensor network is the network of power-limited sensing devices called sensors deployed in a region to sense various types of physical information from the environment when these sensors sense and transmit data to other sensors present in the network; considerable amount of energy is dissipated. In this paper, an effort has been done to propose F-MCHEL, a homogeneous energy protocol. In LEACH protocol the clusters are formed randomly on the basis of threshold values; whereas, in the proposed protocol a fuzzy logic approach is used to elect the cluster-head based on two descriptors - energy and proximity distance. Out of these elected cluster heads one Master cluster head has been elected.
