In this paper, we present minimizing the maximum used power routing algorithm (MIVIPR) in mobile ad hoc network (MANET). Most previous energy aware routing protocols usually optimize just one optimization criterion, which minimizes the total used energy or evenly distributes power consumption in each node to prevent node from being over exhausted. MMPR achieves two optimization objectives using a single route cost equation, which is based on the similar optimization, minimizing the maximum link utilization in LPF-Based-Re-Routing (LPF-RR), of traffic engineering (TE). MMPR can be implemented by modifying a route selection procedure in well-known routing protocol of MANET. We validate MMPR by performing a simulation based on a modification of DSR, and the simulation results showed improved performance in the maximum used energy and the number of dead nodes by time than the conditional max-min battery routing (CMMBCR).
