Energy level performances of three packet delivery schemes in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) are evaluated in presence of Rayleigh fading. Three different information delivery mechanisms are investigated using regenerative relays with or without error correction capability. Energy consumption for successful delivery of a data packet for each mechanism is evaluated and compared under several conditions of node density, bit rate, transmit power, and channel fading. Energy efficiencies of different retransmission schemes are also evaluated. Further, an optimal packet length based on energy efficiency is derived. Impact of optimal packet size on average number of retransmission and total energy expenditure is analyzed for each delivery scheme.

System Model

A square grid network architecture is considered as in (Panichpapiboon et al., 2006). Figure 1 shows a two tier sensor network using square grid topology (Hong & Hua, 2006; Panichpapiboon et al., 2006). Distance between two nearest neighbor is dlink. It is assumed that N numbers of nodes are distributed over a region of area A obeying square grid topology. The node spatial density jghpc.2011070103.m01 is defined as number of nodes per unit area i.e., jghpc.2011070103.m02. The minimum distance between two consecutive neighbors is given by (Panichpapiboon et al., 2006)
