To save energy in wireless sensor network, clustering is an effective method due to its support for data compression, data centric and randomization. The clustering structure functions to the exchange of schedules; the transfer of data packets and use randomization for rotating clusters to balance the energy. There are several design issues in clustering like limited energy, network lifetime, limited abilities and application dependencies, etc. In this paper, the authors propose a Genetic Algorithm (GA) to optimize sensor nodes' energy consumption with clustering technique as it is convenient to reduce energy consumption and traffics in the network.
