Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) consist of sensor nodes with capabilities of sensing, computing, and communicating. But sensors have limited energy and memory capacity to perform the above operations. Therefore, using the available energy and memory efficiently is a challenging issue in WSNs. Clusters-based routing protocols are used to maximize network lifetime. In this paper, we propose a new combination of clustering and replacement algorithm to reduce energy consumption, extend network lifetime and improve throughput during frequent transmission. The proposed protocol, reduce energy consumption by finding the cluster head (CH) node with maximum residual energy, thereby preventing energy hole thus improving network lifetime, and manage memory by using replacement algorithm in case of buffer overflow. The simulation show the proposed protocol has longer network lifetime, increased data delivery than protocols like LEACH, LEACH-C, SEP and EEEHR protocols.

Keyphrases: memory management, network lifetime, sensor networks
