Advancement in technology like MEMS (micro electromechanical systems), wireless communication and digital electronics led the development of wireless sensor network. The distributed nature and dynamic topology of WSN (wireless sensor network) introduces very special requirement in routing protocols. Due to the dependency on the nature of application and network architecture WSN generally works on small battery cell. So there is limited energy for every sensor node which opens the door for development of energy efficient routing protocol to maximize the lifetime of the WSN. To overcome this problem, we have developed LEACH-ACH. Simulations shows that LEACH-ACH is an energy-efficient protocol than the fundamental LEACH protocol to extend system lifetime.
