Energy saving is an important issue in wireless sensor network. Energy consumed in transmission is higher in the presence of interfering nodes due to more re-transmissions are required for a successful transmission. In this paper, interference aware power control PCTDMA for channel access is proposed. Energy consumption in the presence of interferes is investigated. Mathematical models for channel access and power control are derived. The model is simulated in MATLAB and compared with TDMA. The proposed model consumed low energy as compare to traditional TDMA.
