Isabel Dietrich, Feng Chen, Reinhard German and Falko Dressler, "Modeling energy consumption of wireless communications in OMNeT++," Proceedings of GI/ITG KuVS Fachgespräch Systemsoftware und Energiebewusste Systeme, Karlsruhe, Germany, October 2007, pp. 39–42.


We present an energy model for the simulation framework OMNeT++ that has been calibrated using several measurements for real sensor nodes. This energy model allows to study sensor network algorithms and applications in a simulation model with high quality energy estimations. The energy model can be adapted for arbitrary sensor nodes based on respective measurement data. We show the applicability of the energy model based on two scenarios: the analysis of the energy performance of IEEE 802.15.4 and the evaluation of the advantages of on-demand sensor network reprogramming.
