A Wireless sensor network(WSN) is composed of a large number of sensor nodes, which are densely deployed either inside the phenomenon or very close to it. Unlike traditional networks, a WSN has its own design and resource constraints. As sensor nodes operate on limited battery power, energy usage is a very important concern in a WSN; and there has been significant research focus that revolves around harvesting and minimizing energy. In the proposed work , assuming the WSN to be large scale and

In this algorithm, approach of clustering and relay node placement are combined for efficient utilization of energy, thus maximizing network lifetime.
