A Review on Clustering Approaches in Wireless Sensor Networks
Preeti rajput,  Geetika Sharma
Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) increase the focus of researchers in many challenging issues, but energy conservation is the main issue. So, the solution to conserve the energy of the sensor nodes and to increase the lifetime of these nodes as they have limited battery, network is divided into number of clusters. Clustering consists of number of advantages like decrease the delay, energy-efficient, scalable etc. In clustering nodes are divided into clusters through clustering algorithms and every cluster elects its cluster head for data aggregation. Algorithms can be equal clustering algorithm or unequal clustering algorithm. In this paper we presented a brief discussion on different clustering approaches and clustering attributes
Keywords- wireless sensor network, energy efficiency, clustering, cluster head
