The dependability of wireless device networks (WSN) is laid low with faults which will occur attributable to varied reasons like malfunctioning hardware, software system glitches, dislocation, or environmental hazards, e.g. fire or flood. A WSN that's not ready to take care of such things may suffer a discount in overall lifespan, or lead to hazardous consequences in important application contexts. In our proposed work we will propose the fault tolerance mechanism by finding the fail over scenario and will select the backup cluster head. In case of failure of primary cluster head, back up cluster head will take place of primary cluster head automatically. The results shows that the performance of the proposed scheme for finding better fault tolerance in wireless sensor network. Traditional SECA scheme provide good solution for finding cluster heads with good approach but proposed scheme have much better performance in finding cluster heads. The accuracy of the finding cluster heads much improved than the SECA method for energy saving in wireless sensor network. The purpose of back up cluster heads is very helpful in saving energy
