Abstract

Mobile Ad hoc Network (MANET) is a combination of wireless nodes that share resources and information. One of the major issues in MANET is to minimize the energy consumption of wireless nodes. Higher energy consumption nodes minimize the network life while lower energy consumption nodes increase the network life. Various routing protocols have been proposed for energy saving. Ad hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV) is an energy efficient routing protocol. In this paper, the energy based performance of AODV routing protocol is evaluated under Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and User Datagram Protocol (UDP) by using different simulation scenarios. NS2 has been used for simulation purposes. An energy model is defined in which power for receiving and transmitting one packet, initial energy, sleep power, idle power, transition power and transition time values are kept constant for different simulation scenarios. The simulation results show that AODV routing protocol consumes less energy in TCP environment as compared to UDP environment.
