Abstract : The wireless sensor network is growing as a powerful technology in various domains. The applications of wireless sensor networks are increasing rapidly and providing services to different sectors. The nodes employed in the sensor networks are outfitted with restricted battery power and the proper management is required for the utilization of the limited sensor energy. The clustering protocols in sensor networks are designed for handling the energy issue in the network. The clustering protocols proposed in the past has used different techniques and ideas for improving the network lifetime and performance. In order to provide a quick and easy understanding of the key aspects of any domain surveys are very helpful. Keeping this viewpoint in mind, this paper focuses on providing a survey for the clustering protocols which can help the researchers in getting a comprehensive overview of the different aspects of the clustering techniques. In this survey, the clustering protocols are classified on the basis of their clustering methodologies and working capabilities into three categories: traditional clustering protocols, fuzzy logic based clustering protocols, and heuristic based clustering protocols. The protocols of different categories are compared by employing the feature based, methodology based, and performance based comparison parameters to help the researchers in getting an easier understanding of different clustering concepts.
