Abstract: Wireless sensor networks (WSN) is one of the most important fields of research in recent years due to its wide range of applications. Lifetime elongation is the main concern in WSN. This paper focuses on improving the lifetime by using the clustering technique with a centralised algorithm. The optimum number of clusters that maximises the lifetime is obtained and the relation between clusters is investigated. The results prove that the independency of cluster head selection decisions improves the lifetime. Clustering is applied to networks covering large areas and the clustering efficiency is verified. Also, using clustering in applications that do not need data aggregation, is investigated.
