In wireless networks, with the go forward of wireless communication skill, small size and high concert computing and communication plans like commercial laptops and personal computers are increasingly used in convention centers, conferences and electronic classrooms. In wireless ad-hoc networks, a collection of nodes with wireless communications and networking capability communicate with each other without the aid of any centralized administrator. The nodes are mechanical by battery with limited power reservoir. It becomes difficult to recharge or replace the batteries of the nodes hence energy conservation is essential. An energy efficient routing protocol balances node energy utilization to reduce energy consumption and increase the life of nodes thus increasing the network lifetime, reducing the routing delay and increasing the reliability of the packets reaching the destination. Wireless networks do not have any fixed communication infrastructure. For an active connection the end host as well as the intermediate nodes can be mobile. Therefore routes are subject to frequent disconnection. In such an surroundings it is imperative to diminish disruptions caused by altering topology for application using voice and video. Power Aware Routing enables the nodes to detect misbehavior like deviation from regular routing and forwarding by observing the status of the node. By exploit non-random behaviors for the mobility pattern that movable user show, state of network topology can be predict and perform route reconstruction proactively in a timely manner. In this paper we propose an Energy Efficient-Power Aware routing algorithm where we have integrated energy efficiency with power awareness parameters for routing of packets.
