Abstract: Mobile ad hoc network (MANET) is a collection of distributed nodes which communicate using multi-hop wireless links with frequent node mobility. The goal for ad hoc networks is to accommodate light weight, battery powered portable devices. Because of the finite power limitation, we have to design efficient ways to use the existing power. For a networking device, significant power is consumed for communications and more specifically for transmissions. A first step towards efficient utilization of power is to maintain the topology and control the transmission range. For maintaining the topology a new clustering scheme is developed considering the cluster coefficient and degree of the nodes. The transmission ranges of the nodes are controlled for avoiding more power consumption. The proposed intellect clustering algorithm is compared with one of the distributed weighted clustering algorithm. The method of clustering is more efficient to the latter and the variable transmission range is adopted to control the utilization of power. The proposed method improves the modeling of ad hoc networks and the serves as good foundation for formation of ad hoc networks.
Keywords: Clustering, cluster coefficient, energy conservation, node degree, transmission range.
