Researchers have been paying close attention to the wireless sensor (WSN) networks area because of its variety of applications, including industrial management, human detection, and health care management. In Wireless Sensor (WSN) Network, consumption of efficient energy is a challenging problem. Many clustering techniques were used for balancing the load of WSN network. In clustering, the cluster head (CH) is selected as a relay node with greater power which is compared with the nodes of non-CH. In the existing system, it uses LBC-COFL algorithm to reduce the energy consumption problem. To overcome this problem, the proposed system uses Quasi oppositional based Jaya load balancing strategy with cluster head (QOJ-LCH) selection protocol to boost the lifespan of network and energy consumption. The QOJ-LCH method improves the relay nodes life and shares the load on relay nodes equitably across the network to enhance the lifespan. It also reduces the load-balancing problems in Wireless Sensor networks. It uses two routing methods single-hop and multiple-hop. The proposed QOJ-LCH with cluster head selection method enhances the network’s lifespan, total amount of power utilization and the active sensor devices present in the Single-hop routing ,it worked with 1600 rounds in network and 300 sensor nodes, for Multiple-hop routing, it worked with 1800 rounds in network and 350 sensor nodes. It achieves better performance, scalability and reliability.
