Nowadays energy efficiency is a major issue for distributed wireless sensor networks (WSNs) deployed in varied environments. The energy efficient cluster-based protocols play a vital role for energy saving in hierarchical wireless sensor networks. In modelling, probability plays its important role. The probability definition is different for different approaches. The present paper is an approach to incorporate a model in the form of Gaussian Mixture Model (GMM) instead of an algorithm or a
