Now-a-days, lot of important tasks is performed using MANET. To improve the communication energy efficiency at individual nodes power aware is an important issue. Here, the authors propose an Efficient Power Aware Routing (EPAR), a new power aware routing protocol that increases the MANET lifetime. Comparing to conventional power aware algorithms, EPAR identifies the node capacity not just by its battery power, but also by the energy lost in reliably forwarding data packets over a specific link. This is by a mini-max formulation; EPAR selects the path that has maximum packet capacity at the lowest residual packet transmission capacity.
