Research Area:  Wireless Sensor Networks
The fact of multi-hop data transmission in wireless sensor network will lead serious load unbalance. Considering the limited energy supply, the load distribution will cause great restraints in relative applications. Existing algorithm mostly perform the load balance inside each cluster without considering about the entire network consumption. A cluster-based Balanced Energy Consumption Algorithm (BECA) is proposed by collecting the data more efficiently to avoid heavy traffic nodes so as to achieve global load balance. Simulating results show that BECA can obtain better balance properties and prolong the network lifetime greatly.
