Abstract: This paper evaluates energy level performance of three packet delivery schemes in a Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) in shadowed channel. Three different information delivery mechanisms are investigated using regenerative relays with or without error correction capability. Energy consumption for successful delivery of a data packet for each mechanism is evaluated and compared under several conditions of node density, bit rate, transmit power etc. Energy efficiency of different retransmission schemes is evaluated. Further an optimal packet length based on energy efficiency is derived. Impact of different level of severity of shadowing on energy consumption is also investigated. Further impact of fixed and optimal packet size on energy consumption is analyzed.


Keywords: Wireless sensor networks, BER; Shadowing, ARQ, Optimal packet size.
