In wireless sensor networks (WSN), energy efficiency has been the main concern. Analysis of threshold sensitive modified LEACH protocol has been done in this paper. For the identical amount of initial energy and election probability the number of rounds, which a node lives in threshold, sensitive modified LEACH protocol is to a great extent higher than the traditional LEACH protocol suggested by critical comparative analysis and simulation results. Modified LEACH protocol mainly involves the modified cluster head scheme as well as the dual transmitting power level. The threshold sensitive modified LEACH protocol outruns the traditional LEACH protocol in terms of energy efficiency as shown by the results obtained.
