Energy conservation is one of the most important factors in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) for reliability since nodes have limited resources of energy. There is a need to design such routing protocols, which efficiently use available energy and prolong network lifetime and stability period. We implement sink mobility in Clusterless Stable Election Protocol (CL-SEP) and proposed Tunnel Routing Protocol (TRP) for WSNs, which is two level heterogeneous. From the simulation results, it is seen that the proposed protocol outperforms the conventional SEP in stability period, network lifetime and throughput. It efficiently utilizes the available energy of the network by using Moving Sink (MS) and prolongs network lifetime and stability period.
