Abstract: Energy efficient routing is be one of the most essential design measure for MANET because mobile nodes are battery powered with bounded capacity and which cannot be recharged when ever needed. So, MANET routing is challenged by power and bandwidth constraints. When mobile nodes run out of power, the network obtains partitioned and thus a few sessions are disconnected. In order to solve this problem and to attain efficient energy consumption, several solutions have been proposed. All those works are finished as the extension of the already existing adhoc routing protocols such as Proactive, Reactive and Hybrid Routing. Since table-driven protocols consume additional energy compared to on-demand protocols, the proposals made modifications to existing reactive protocols. The majority of the energy-aware protocols referenced here are implemented as modifications of the basic routing protocols using energy-sensitive metrics. Link stability is also a significant challenge of MANET routing. Several routing algorithms have been proposed for provided that QoS in terms of link stability. In this work we focused on evaluating how these approaches and algorithms influence the energy consumption in the mobile devices and how stable routes are founded in the network.
