Routing in wireless sensor network environment plays a critical role where it might be affected by various factors which would lead to data transmission failure/corruption. Energy is the most concerned factor which affects the routing task mostly due to their limited availability. Thus routers require most efficient routing protocol which can perform data communication with less energy consumption. This routing protocol should be capable of adapting critical conditions happening on routers. Another problem that is mostly found on routing task is security. The security issues created by the hackers would corrupt/steal the data when it is being transmitted to the destination nodes. The routing protocol should also capable of tolerating the security issues and needs to ensure the successful data transmission. In this analysis work, various hierarchical clustering algorithms that are proposed for grouping the wireless sensor nodes those is present in the environment is discussed. The clustering that can be applied on both heterogeneous and homogeneous wireless network environment is discussed. The operation and functionality of each clustering algorithms are given in depth to understand the routing skill of each nodes. The merits and demerits that are present in the every clustering algorithm are presented to find the better clustering approach. The experimental analysis of every algorithm are done and compared in terms of various performance measures to find the better clustering approach that can be utilized for further scenario.
