    Abstract :

    A Mobile Ad-Hoc Network (MANET) is an infrastructure less network where there is no centralized administrator. MANET is a collection of mobile nodes that relies on battery power. The topology is dynamic as the nodes are moving independently. Due to the mobility of each of the node in MANET, the energy consumption of each node is more, which degrades the overall performance of the network. Therefore energy consumption is the major issue in MANET. This paper proposes a new methodology for conserving energy in each of the node present in the MANET. The proposed new methodology announces energy and based on nodes sending and receiving rates and the sizes of the data to be transmitted it justifies whether its energy level is maintained or decreased. It calculates the energy level in each of the node before they are selected for routing path. In this new methodology, some threshold values are defined for Residual Energy, Number of Control traffic and Packet Size. If the node’s energy level is greater than the threshold value and number of control traffic as well as packet size is smaller than the corresponding threshold values, then only the node is considered for routing ; if not, then that node is directly discarded from route selection process. The proposed methodology conserves the energy in each of the node in the network by forwarding the data packets of smaller size only. The implementation and analysis is done on NS2. This methodology is mainly based on the AODV Routing Protocol.
