Abstract: This study is meant for optimal utilization and control of energy with discrete power control works during internodes communication in wireless sensor network. In this communication process the main goal to be achieved is localization which is meant for determining the position of a particular node inside a cluster or the whole network in relation with the neighbouring nodes. To determine this location there are some aspects like getting the position with respect to other nodes and the second is extracting the position information from the node itself. In both the cases the resultant should be accurate and should be operated at minimal cost of resource consumption. To achieve the optimal cost we propose OpteLoc Model which works with hop based localization technique and experimental results are obtained under ideal condition with help from Network Simulator Version 2.27 that forms the energy model.
