Abstract: A main challenge in the field of sensor networks is energy efficiency to prolong the sensor's operational lifetime. Due to low-cost hardware, nodes' placement or hardware design, recharging might be impossible. Since most energy is spent for radio communication, many approaches exist that put sensor nodes into sleep mode with the communication radio turned off. In this paper, we propose a new Topology and Energy Control Algorithm called TECA. We will show the performance of TECA by means of extensive simulations compared to two other approaches. In terms of operational lifetime, packet delivery and network connectivity, TECA shows promising results. Unlike many other simulations, we use an appropriate link loss model that was verified in reality. By measuring packet delivery rates, TECA is able to adapt to different environments while still maintaining network connectivity.
