Performance Comparison of a Novel Adaptive Protocol with the Fixed Power Transmission in Wireless Sensor Networks
AbstractIn this paper, we compare the performance of a novel adaptive protocol with the fixed power transmission protocol using experimental data when the distance between the transmitter and the receiver is fixed. In fixed power transmission protocol, corresponding to the distance between the sensor and the hub, there is a fixed power level that provides the optimal or minimum value in terms of energy consumption while maintaining a threshold Quality of Service (QoS) parameter. This value is bounded by the available output power levels of a given radio transceiver. The proposed novel adaptive power control protocol tracks and supersedes that energy expenditure by using an intelligent algorithm to ramp up or down the output power level as and when required. This protocol does not use channel side information in terms of received signal strength indication (RSSI) or link quality indication (LQI) for channel estimation to decide the transmission power. It also controls the number of allowed retransmissions for error correction. Experimental data have been collected at different distances between the transmitting sensor and the hub. It can be observed that the energy consumption of the fixed power level is at least 25% more than the proposed adaptive protocol for comparable packet success rate. View Full-Text
