A wireless sensor network is made up of a thousand spatially distributed devices known as sensor nodes which used to sense some physical conditions like temperature, pressure etc and then it sends this data to the receiver using pre-establish network. Sensor nodes are resource constrained so lifetime of network is important issue. There are different routing protocols that have been proposed for this issue. Routing protocols are described for efficiently use energy of sensor nodes. Energy efficiency and network lifetime are the primary issues in WSNs. Therefore, the good choice is to develop energy efficient routing protocol in WSN to decrease the energy consumption as well as to maximize network lifetime. Energy efficient Chain based PEGASIS (Power-Efficient Gathering in Sensor Information Systems) routing protocol is utilizing less amount of energy of sensor node which is to increase life time of WSN. PEGASIS performs better than other existing routing protocols. Here simulation is done in MATLAB for PEGASIS for 4000 rounds of CH selection and area of the network chosen is 100x200 square meter. And it is seen that how much energy consumption is done in this protocol. Keywords: PEGASIS, WSN, Sensor Nodes, CH, MATLAB.
