A wireless sensor network has wide applications and its critical battery power is used in sensing, processing and transmitting data to the base station. So many protocols were proposed to efficiently use the battery power to extend the lifetime of the wireless sensor network. In this paper, the authors propose a new protocol Unequal Clustering Energy Efficient Stable Election Protocol (UCEESEP) in wireless sensor network. They analyze and compare the results of other protocols like LEACH (Low Energy Adaptive Clustering Hierarchy), SEP (Stable Election Protocol), ESEP (Enhanced Stable Election Protocol) and TEEN (Threshold Sensitive Energy Efficient sensor Network protocol) with UCEESEP.
