Abstract: Clustering is an efficient way to improve lifetime of wireless sensor network. To enhance lifetime of sensor network this paper proposes to have multiple cluster heads within the cluster of sensor nodes. At a given time one cluster head (CH) from the cluster acts as a leader of the cluster and the leadership is rotated among the cluster heads based on the energy levels. The experimental results show the efficiency of proposed algorithm in terms of residual energy, total alive nodes and the execution time as compared to the cluster with single cluster head and LEACH protocol.
