A New Model of the Lifetime of Wireless Sensor Networks in Sea Water Communications

Authors: Abdelrahman Elleithy, Gonhsin Liu, Ali Elrashidi

In this paper we present a new model for the lifetime of wireless sensor networks used for sea water communications. The new model for power communications takes into consideration parameters such as power consumption for the active mode, power consumption for the sleep mode, power consumption for the transient mode, transmission period, transient mode duration, sleep mode duration, and active mode duration. The power communications model is incorporated in the life time model of wireless sensor networks. The life time model takes into consideration several parameters such as the total number of sensors, network size, percentage of sink nodes, location of sensors, the mobility of sensors, power consumption when nodes move and the power consumption of communications. The new model for power consumption in communications shows more accurate results about the lifetime of the sensor network in comparison with previously published results.
