The clustering communication sensor network structure is a main energy efficient communication protocol. The cluster heads collect information transmitted from the cluster members to process the data in the base station far beyond. In this structure, the unstable and unevenly distributed cluster heads can increase power of the network system. In this paper, we propose a energy efficient cluster head selection to select the cluster heads in higher density so that the cluster members are almost in the transmission range of the cluster heads for wireless sensor network. The experimental results show the proposed method can extend the lifetime of the wireless sensor network system.
