Whereas if the transmission range of nodes rises the number of cluster in each solution decreases, moreover in case of ACONET there are more optimized solution as compared to CLPSO and MOPSO.
In ACONET graph shows 49 clusters initially, which lead downwards up to 15 at the end when we increase the transmission range, it is because the network area is very large and the transmission range of nodes is comparatively small.
By comparing these results we conclude this section, ACONET provides less number of clusters as compare to other algorithms which leads to efficient clustering, moreover we can determine that ACONET performs better in case of dense environment.
The ACONET gives more balanced clusters than the CLPSO and MOPSO as we increase the transmission range as well as it gives a variety of solutions.
3 exhibits that ACONET is more effective as the number of neighbors reaches the threshold value and performs better than CLPSO and MOPSO in terms of balancing the load in the network.
