Energy Model in ns2 - NS2 Tutorial # 6

LEcture 6 - Ns2 Energy Model

Wireless NEtworking in ns2

By default, nodes have infinite energy, to make it finite, we need to implement energy model.

in the node config we need to include the following lines

-energyModel "EnergyModel" \

-initialEnergy 3.0 \

-txPower 0.9 \

-rxPower 0.5 \

-idlePower 0.45 \

-sleepPower 0.05 \

Energy (joules) = Power (Watts) * Time (sec) for downloading the source codes

#Lecture 6 

#Example of Wireless networks

#Step 1 initialize variables

#Step 2 - Create a Simulator object

#step 3 - Create Tracing and animation file

#step 4 - topography

#step 5 - GOD - General Operations Director

#step 6 - Create nodes

#Step 7 - Create Channel (Communication PATH)

#step 8 - Position of the nodes (Wireless nodes needs a location)

#step 9 - Any mobility codes (if the nodes are moving)

#step 10 - TCP, UDP Traffic

#run the simulation

#initialize the variables
