The paper presents a simulator that models routing paths and energy distribution in a WSN as a function of the algorithm executed by each node of the network. Simulator was prepared to investigate whether globally defined goals can be achieved through the decisions and actions taken locally by each node that has restricted information about the whole network. Therefore, simulator models each node independently defining three basic relations for each of them - subordination, tolerance and restriction. We have implemented several novel, non-clustered routing protocols that describe behavior of each node of the network - so that we are able to verify how decisions taken locally affect the whole network.
