How to find energy consumption of the network in ns2


The energy model represents the energy level of nodes in the network. The energy model defined in a node has an initial value that is the level of energy the node has at the beginning of the simulation. This energy is termed as initialEnergy_. In simulation, the variable “energy” represents the energy level in a node at any specified time. The value of initialEnergy_ is passed as an input argument. A node looses a particular amount of energy for every packet transmitted and every packet received. As a result, the value of initialEnergy_ in a node gets decreased. The energy consumption level of a node at any time of the simulation can be determined by finding the difference between the current energy value and initialEnergy_ value. If an energy level of a node reaches zero, it cannot receive or transmit anymore packets. The amount of energy consumption in a node can be printed in the trace file. The energy level of a network can be determined by summing the entire node’s energy level in the network.
