Keywords: Wireless Sensor Networks | Energy Consumption

Wireless sensor networks consist of small, autonomous devices with wireless networking capabilities. In order to further increase the applicability in real world applications, minimizing energy consumption is one of the most critical issues. Therefore, accurate energy model is required for the evaluation of wireless sensor networks. In this paper, the energy consumption for wireless sensor network (WSN) node is analyzed. To estimate the lifetime of sensor node, the energy characteristics of sensor node are measured. Research in this area has been growing in the past few years given the wide range of applications that can benefit from such a technology. In this paper, analysis of energy consumption of a WSN node is analyzed with a proposed node. Based on the proposed model, the estimated lifetime of a battery powered sensor node can be increased significantly.
