Abstract: An ad hoc wireless system is an accumulation of self-ruling nodes or terminals that interacts with each other by framing a multi-hop radio system and keeps connectivity in a decentralised way. This implies that it can maintain the system promptly without the need of framework organisation. In spite, there has been a developing enthusiasm for mobile ad hoc networks as the method for giving sudden links to a group of nodes. The energy requirement of a portable node is typically a battery and the battery depletion is one of the real constraints behind the node failure. Entire mobile nodes may not be inside the transmission range of each other thus they need to interact with multi-hop approach. The loss of a unique node can incredibly influence the entire execution of the system. Thus, to utilise the constrained energy source viably and to maximise the life time of the system numerous energy effective routing protocols have been proposed for MANETs that in turn utilise diverse applications to preserve energy. Here it aims to improve the accuracy of performance evaluation therefore it is required to consider the evaluation of protocols at different layers which leads to better energy solutions. The present research will focus on evaluating performance of energy efficient protocols at different layers.

Keywords: mobile ad hoc networks; energy efficient protocols; multi-hop.
