Clustering has been proposed by researches to group a number of nodes to form a cluster that managed by cluster head. The main goal of clustering protocols is to minimize the energy consumption and enhance the network lifetime of wireless sensor networks. We propose DEBC protocol, which is distributed energy balanced clustering for wireless sensor networks. DEBC forms clusters, selects cluster heads, selects cluster senders and determines appropriate routings in order to reduce overall energy consumption and enhance the network lifetime. DEBC compared to well known protocol with two metrics network lifetime and energy dissipation. The simulation results show that DEBC minimizes energy consumption of sensor nodes and enhance the network lifetime.
