Devices in Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) i.e. called nodes are typically battery-powered or energy dependent. The sources of power are providing the capability of working and measures in joules unit that's why it also called energy. The growing need for energy efficiency in cable less networks, in general, and in mobile ad hoc networks in particular, calls for energy enhancement features. Energy aware scheme can be applied in MANET routing protocols. Average change in energy over time in the unmodified protocols show a steady increase with time, while the energy aware protocols show an increase in the starting, then it levels for some time before it starts to decrease.
