In this paper, the authors are implementing an advanced optimizes clustering algorithm to enhance network lifetime when LEACH protocol is used. Main concept behind the wireless sensors network is to save energy more and more so that it works last long enough. This is due to fact that the size of a sensor node is expected to be small and this leads to constraints on size of its components i.e. battery size, processors, data storing memory, all are needed to be small. So any optimization in these networks should focus on optimizing energy consumption to enhance WSN life time. For this various protocols and algorithms by various approaches are there to enhance WSN lifetime.
