ABSTRACT
Mobile Ad-hoc Network (MANET) is generally established in areas where infrastructural facilities such asbase station, routers etc. do not exist or have been destroyed due to natural calamity. Due to theirinfrastructure-less nature they have several constrains such as bandwidth, computational capacity andbattery power of each node. Power conservation is crucial to proper operations of MANET. Variousresearchers have provided several mechanisms to reduce the power consumption. One such mechanism isto take variable transmission range of nodes into account. This paper studies the impact of the same bydesigning a simulator in MATLAB. We observe a marked impact of variable transmission range on powersaving.
