In this paper, a realistic energy consumption model of sensor node has been provided by considering eleven key energy consumption sources, some of which are ignored by contemporary energy consumption models. Clustering is a technique by which we can reduce energy consumption of networks. Optimizing the number of clusters improves the scalability of system, reduces the system collisions and delays. To this end, we proposed a realistic energy consumption model of a sensor node, by using that, provided an analytical expression for finding the optimal number of clusters in a Weibull distributed WSNs.
