Wireless communication between sensors allows the formation of flexible sensor networks, which can be deployed rapidly on inaccessible areas. Energy management remains as the tedious challenge in these networks. Collection of data by sensors in a clustered topology and aggregating data at intermediate level remains as the good solution to save energy. The research for topology control and efficient distribution of load in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) has been active in recent years and ample literature exists. This paper discusses some important works in this direction. Overall analysis is based on the following categories: Clustering without cluster size restriction, Unequal clustering mathods, Cluster head selection using fuzzy logic and protocol that maintain connectivity.
