Abstract: In wireless sensor networks (WSN), energy saving is always a key concern. Since nodes have limited power, some of them may use specific routes, thus leading to exhaustion of intermediate nodes. These nodes die, which results in routing holes in the network. Consequently, the overall throughput of the network may get reduced. Therefore, in this study, the mathematical proposed model is leaded to optimal route by depending on equal power consumption from whole nodes in the network. Moreover, a new routing protocol model was designed. The protocol is termed as Consumed Power Fairly (CPF). This protocol could achieve high power efficiency by distributing power consumption equally to all nodes in the network. Our proposed model works on finding the route to destination with high power availability after summation of the total power for all nodes from the source to the destination node, thus subtracting the power consumption for particular data required to send. In short, the proposal CPF protocol reduces the number of dead nodes and keeps the connectivity high, which increases prolonging the network lifetime.
