This paper presents energy analysis of a new routing protocol CIDRSN (Cluster ID based Routing in static Sensor Networks) with closedform probability oferror and bit energy expression in Nakagami-m fading channel. CIDRSN takes the cluster ID as next hop address instead of cluster-head ID in routing table and eliminate the cluster formation phase and routing phase from being executed in each round, which reduces the energy consumption and increases the network life to about 16%. Robustness is increased by multi-path routing. Simulation results show that the proposed protocol outperforms the preceding hierarchical routing protocols.
