in the recent years, the Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) has grown dramatically in many fields such as military applications, environmental applications, and health assistant applications. However, there are numerous problems associated with applying the WSNs. Such problems are related to power consumption, performance, reliability, installation cost, and hardware cost.

Thus, many algorithms in the WSNs context have been considered to propose an improved solar Low Energy Adaptive Clustering Hierarchy (LEACH) technique for maximizing the lifetime, increasing the performance, increasing the reliability, and decreasing the costs. This proposed technique improves the selecting Cluster Heads (CHs) process and powering it with a renewable energy (solar cell). The OMNeT++ tool has been employed to simulate such technique. After many scenarios have taken place with different data sets, this study finds that the lifetime of WSNs has been maximized, the performance has been improved, the reliability has also been improved, and finally the cost has been decreased.
