Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are networks of typically small, battery-powered, wireless devices, equipped with on-board processing, communication and sensing capabilities. Especially wireless sensor network suffers from excessive packet loss, over hearing, retransmission of the packets due to node mobility and constant energy dissipation. A current technique for routing and data transmission does not take into account of optimizing the transmission through Energy Balancing. There is several power and energy aware algorithms that claim to compensate for the energy losses. The main fundamental of most of the techniques is to route the packets through the highest energy nodes which lead to quick battery drainage of those node. Therefore the network lifetime decreases.
