Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) allow a set of wireless hosts to exchange information without any special infrastructure. Limited battery power is one of the most important issues in mobile ad hoc network as the mobile nodes operate in limited battery power. Also there occurs a problem of broken links due to the lack of energy which cause disorder in network system. Such problem occurs due to the unawareness of energy of mobile neighbor nodes. Here, the authors choose Optimized Link State Protocol i.e. OLSR because it is not Loop free and its communication overhead is high.
