Nodes in ad hoc networks have limited battery power. Hence they require energy-efficient technique to improve average network performance. Maintaining energy-efficiency in ad hoc networks is really challenging because highest energyefficiency is achieved if all the nodes are always switched off and energy-efficiency will be minimum if all the nodes are fully operational i.e. always turned-on. Energy preservation requires redirection of data packets through some other routes having good performance. This improves data packet delivery ratio and number of alive nodes decreasing cost of messages.
