In recent research advancements attaining the energy efficiency, lifetime, latency, nodes positioning in other words high reliability along with robustness have become the prime research objectives of wireless sensor network. By this paper there is an effort to provide a comparative analysis of the routing protocols, centring our work on energy parameter. Focusing on the clustering based routing protocols, we simulate and compare Distributed Energy Efficient Clustering (DEEC) and Energy Efficient Sleep Awake Aware (EESAA).We prove how idea of pairing amongst sensor node makes better utilization of energy than conventional clustering based methods also with improved other network parameters.
