With the advances of MEMS, low-power analog and digital electronics, and low-power RF design, the design of wireless sensors has been developed rapidly. The advances of wireless sensors have enabled wireless sensor networks which are deployed to collect useful information from an area of interest. Because of the energy restriction of wireless sensors, the problem to extend the lifetime of wireless sensor networks becomes the most important problem in the field of wireless sensor networks research. In this paper, we analysis the Energy Modeling of wireless sensor networks and propose a routing algorithm based on hierarchical minimum spanning tree. Our simulation results show that our algorithm performs well than LEACH algorithm.
