A FRAMEWORK FOR CONSERVING POWER IN MANETS
Keywords:MANETs, Energy Efficiency, controlled mobility.
The idea of using controllable relay nodes for designing mobile systems has been explored by several researchers. The main objective of this paper is to design a framework for deploying relay nodes with controlled mobility to conserve power in MANET. To meet out this proposal, a heterogeneous network consisting of traditional nodes with limited energy and relay nodes with more energy resources are considered. The deployment of relay nodes are based on the following two methods: 1. Min-Total, aims to minimize the total energy consumption of all the traditional nodes in the network. 2. Min-Max, aims to minimize the energy consumed by a traditional node in the network. The solution of these two methods can be used to prioritize each individual node in the network. The trade-offs involved in deploying an increasing/decreasing fraction of relay nodes, varying node weights, varying epoch duration is analyzed. This framework aims at dynamically combining both Min-Total and Min-Max based on the characteristics and requirements of the network.
