Power efficiency and link reliability are of great importance in hierarchical wireless sensor networks (HWSNs), especially at the key level, which consists of sensor nodes located only one hop away from the sink node called OHS. The power and admission control problem in HWSNs is comsidered to improve its power efficiency and link reliability. This problem is modeled as a non-cooperative game in which the active OHSs are considered as players. By applying a double-pricing scheme in the definition of OHSs' utility function, a Nash Equilibrium solution with network properties is derived. Besides, a distributed algorithm is also proposed to show the dynamic processes to achieve Nash Equilibrium. Finally, the simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm.
