Ad hoc wireless networks are the category of wireless networks that utilize multi-hop radio relaying and are capable of operating without the support of any fixed infrastructure. In typical wireless networks, terminals have to be powered on at all time to detect possible signals that target them. This always ON results in significant unwanted energy consumption. Ideally, the wireless radio is powered on only when there are data waiting to be transmitted or reeeived. Otherwise, the radio is powered off and the node is in the sleep state. In this way, the wasted energy for idle mode is minimized. The Zone Routing Protocol (ZRP) implements hybrid routing by every network node proactively maintaining routing information about its routing zone, while reactively acquiring routes to destinations beyond the routing zone. In this paper, we proposed power saving techniques in ZRP and enhance the life time of the network. We demonstrate the performance of Power Efficient Zone Routing Protocol (PEZRP) with varying number of nodes in the network using NS2 Simulator. Furthermore, we compared the performance of PEZRP and ZRP by considering Power levels and number of nodes in the network.
