Mobile ad hoc networks usually consist of mobile battery operated computing devices that communicate over the wireless medium and they have limited battery capacity. Many proposed routing protocols for mobile ad hoc networks concentrate on issues like the packet delivery ratio, routing overhead and shortest path between source and destination. In fact, power constraints represent an equally important issue in mobile ad hoc networks operations. A power effective source routing protocol reduces the energy consumption of the nodes in a mobile ad hoc network by routing packets on routes that consumes the minimum amount of energy to get the packets to their destination. In this paper, I have proposed a power routing protocol for mobile ad hoc networks. The goal of my protocol is to reduce power consumption in transmission and balance power consumption of nodes to increase the life time of the whole network.
