Mobile ad hoc network (MANET) is a self sufficient system containing a collection of mobile nodes which can dynamically change their network topology. All the mobile nodes in the network are connected by wireless links and nodes are free to move randomly and organize themselves into a network. Mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) are infrastructure less, dynamic network consisting of a bunch of wireless mobile nodes that communicate with each other. This paper aims to evaluate the performance of the three MANET routing protocols ZRP, DSR and OLSR in terms of throughput and delay for different node density. Random Waypoint is used as mobility model in it. Simulations are carried out using NETSIM simulator and lastly, we present simulation results that illustrate how the performance drastically changes, as a result of changing the different protocols. The conclusion which routing protocol is best in each of the varying mobility is also stated.
