Notice: As of 2014 and for the forthcoming years, the publication frequency/periodicity of WSEAS Journals is adapted to the 'continuously updated' model. What this means is that instead of being separated into issues, new papers will be added on a continuous basis, allowing a more regular flow and shorter publication times. The papers will appear in reverse order, therefore the most recent one will be on top.

ABSTRACT: The rapid evolution of mobile computing is driving a new alternative way in which infrastructure less Wireless Networks with self configured mobile devices are called Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANETs). Power Heterogeneity aware with load balanced congestion control is an important technical issue in MANET. Efficient Power Aware Routing (EPAR) selects path in which nodes have largest data packet transmission capacity with smallest residual battery power. Load balanced Congestion Control methodology is used to distribute the traffic load across the network for optimal resource utilization. The Load balanced Congestion Adaptive Routing (LBCAR) protocol maximizes the operational lifetime by using the congestion status of the nodes and link cost of the route in MANET. The proposed protocol, Cluster based Adaptive Efficient Power Aware Routing (CAEPAR) consists of Cluster mechanism with energy efficient load balanced congestion control. The cluster head selection in CAEPAR is based on the energy efficiency and congestion status of the nodes in the network. The performance of MANET using CAEPAR has been analyzed and compared with DSR, MTPR, EPAR, CRP and LBCAR. In dealing with congestion control and achieving good QoS constraints, CAEPAR is highly efficient and outperforms in terms of Residual Battery Power, Battery Power Consumption, Network Lifetime and Throughput.
