Clustering can be used as an effective technique to achieve both energy load balancing and an extended lifetime for a wireless sensor network (WSN). This paper presents a novel approach that first creates energy balanced fixed/static clusters, and then, to attain energy load balancing within each fixed cluster, rotates the role of cluster head through uniformly quantized energy levels based approach to prolong the overall network lifetime. The method provided herein, not only provides near-dynamic clustering performance but also reduces the complexity due to the fact that cluster formation phase is implemented once. The presented simulation results clearly show the efficacy of this proposed algorithm and thus, it can be used as a practical approach to obtain maximized network lifetime for energy balanced clusters in fixed clustering environments. © 2012 IEEE.

Akgun, B.; Aykin I. (IEEE Computer Society, 2013)The clustering algorithms designed for traditional sensor networks have been adapted for energy harvesting sensor networks (EHWSN). However, in these algorithms, the intra-cluster MAC protocols to be used were either not ...
On the analysis of expected distance between sensor nodes and the base station in randomly deployed WSNs Sevgi, C.; Ali, S.A. (Springer Verlag, 2014)In this study, we focus on the analytical derivation of the expected distance between all sensor nodes and the base station (i.e., E[dtoBS]) in a randomly deployed WSN. Although similar derivations appear in the related ...
Balancing energy loads in wireless sensor networks through uniformly quantized energy levels-based clustering Ali, S.A.; Sevgi, C.; Kocyigit, A. (2010)Clustering is considered a common and an effective method to prolong the lifetime of a wireless sensor network. This paper provides a new insight into the cluster formation process based on uniformly quantizing the residual ...
