Maintaining the energy of sensors in Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is important in critical applications. WSN consists of sensor nodes which sense the physical parameters such as temperature, humidity, pressure and light etc and send them to a fusion center namely Base Station (BS) from where one can get the value of physical parameters at any time. Man cannot often recharge the batteries which supplies the sensing device, transceiver and memory unit in the sensor node. So the usage of the
