The design of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) significantly on the application. In sensor network design, physical and logical topology plays major role. One of the key challenges in physical topology of WSN design is to provide energy efficient communication. The goal of this paper is to study the impact of parameters like Tx power (Transmission power), duty cycle and their correspondence in order to reduce idle listening and unnecessary high transmitting power for energy saving that can be considered more in case of industrial stack monitoring scenario. The tuning of these parameters is tested using value reporting application module of a Castalia simulator.

Keywords: wireless sensor networks; physical topology; tunable MAC; Tx power; duty cycle; listen interval; Castalia simulator.
