Abstract—This article focused on the energy limit property of Wireless Sensor Network, and proposed a residual energy based algorithm WRECS, which is improved on classical routing algorithm LEACH. The algorithm took the normalized residual energy and the cumulative number of the normal nodes supported by the cluster heads as clusterheads selection parameters. In order to balance the energy consumption of each cluster-head, the algorithm took both the different positions of the base station and the initial energy of the network into consideration, and weighted the two factors to balance the energy consumption between transmission and data fusion. Simulation results show that the algorithm can promote the lifetime of the uneven energy network and does not impair the effects of the LEACH algorithm.

Index Terms—WSN, LEACH, routing algorithm, residual energy, WRECS
