The Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) has found an extensive variety of applications, which include battlefield surveillance, monitoring of environment and traffic, modern agriculture due to their effectiveness in communication. Clustering is one of the significant mechanisms for enhancing the lifespan of the network in WSN. This clustering scheme is exploited to improve the sensor network's lifespan by decreasing the network's energy consumption and increasing the stability of the network. The existing cluster head selection algorithm suffers from the inconsistent tradeoffs between exploration - exploitation and global search constraints. Therefore, in this research, the hybridization of two popular optimization algorithms, namely, Harmony Search Algorithm (HSA) and Squirrel Search Algorithm (SSA) is executed for optimal selection of cluster heads in WSN with respect to distance and energy. The proposed Hybrid Squirrel Harmony Search Algorithm (HSHSA) is found to be energy efficient when compared with first node death (FND) and last node death (LND) of existing Cluster Head Selection (CHS) techniques. In addition to this, the proposed HSHSA shows enhancements in overall throughput and residual energy of the wireless sensor network by 31.02% and 85.69%, respectively than the existing algorithms. © Science and Information Organization.
