An ad hoc network is a wireless and infrastructure less network. It has dynamic and impermanent network topology. Each of nodes contains limited power in ad hoc networks. Power constraint is a major challenge to ad hoc networks. Limited power of nodes breaks link of the networks and reduces life of the networks. This proposed method minimizes the problem of link breakage and reduces the energy use of the network using a threshold (cutoff) based technique. This method takes all the paths whose nodes have energy greater than threshold value.
