In this paper, the authors investigate the change of initial energy in leach protocol to prolong the network lifetime in order to achieve network reliability and scalability. The values of initial energy taken are 0.5, 1, 2, 3 joule. For the case, simulation results show that nodes start decaying after 5100th rounds. Thus nodes are surviving longer for higher energy cases taken. The paper recommends adequate energy use to increase network lifetime of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs).
