Wireless sensor networks are challenging networks regarding communication because of its resource constrained nature and dynamic network topology. Plenty of research has being going on throughout the world to optimize communication cost and overhead due to it in the ad hoc networks, thus efforts are being made to make the communications more energy efficient. The application spectrum and use cases of wireless sensor networks includes many critical applications as environmental monitoring, to resource monitoring, to Industrial measurements, to public safety applications and last but not the least to sensitive applications as military sector applications .The erratic size of such networks and along with its exotic topology pose a magnificent set of challenges to the routing algorithms designed and implemented within such networks. The present work concentrates on the comparative analysis of some of reactive and proactive protocols used in the wireless sensor networks. The parameter for comparative analysis is the energy consumption for different simulation time and for different mobility conditions based scenario.
