A Review on Algorithms of Cluster Head in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks

Simarjot Kaur, Jagjit Kaur, Chinkita .



Mobile ad hoc networks consists of mobile nodes that communicates with each different with none mounted topology. Cluster head choice, energy consumption and security may be a great challenge for MANET recently. Optimizing cluster head choice minimizes the energy consumption during a specific network and in addition reduces the information transmission overheads. There are several algorithms for cluster head choice that are supported many parameters. For higher utilization of energy, bandwidth, secure and quick transmission with less network traffic there should be a cheap algorithmic rule for cluster head choice. In this paper, we tend to study completely different cluster head choice algorithms for security and energy consumption of a particular cluster that maintains the period of time of the network.
