Abstract—Power heterogeneous networks are common in MANETs. High power nodes network can improve network scalability, connectivity, broadcasting robustness of the MANETs. Due to the presence of high power nodes unidirectional links are formed which may reduce network throughput. So in order to reduce this issue a routing protocol which avoids packet forwarding through high power nodes is developed. Here a routing-aware optimal clustering mechanism that balances power consumption at different cluster heads. For power balancing here we are maximizing the coverage time of the network. The coverage time of the network is defined as the time until one of the cluster head runs out of battery, resulting in an incomplete coverage area. Via simulations the effectiveness of this cluster based routing protocol on improving the performance of power heterogeneous MANETs is demonstrated.
