Wireless sensor network consist of a set of sensor nodes. The processing capacity varies with each node. Sensors in it have storage capacity which is limited. The main challenge today in this field is to improvise the power and energy management of sensor network. Different techniques have been introduced by various researches. In this paper, proposes an algorithm to improvise sensor energy using compression techniques. This is called as packet level data compression techniques. In the authors' previous paper sequential data compression techniques two different techniques were proposed to improve energy in sensors.
