This paper studies a number of network characteristics of Low Energy Adaptive Clustering Hierarchy (LEACH), and Modified Low Energy Adaptive Clustering Hierarchy (MODLEACH) protocols. It intends to enumerate dead nodes, alive nodes, and packet-to-BS and packet-to-CH consumed by the entire network, and affected by its characteristics e.g. network area, probability, number of rounds, number of nodes, and energy of data aggregation. Different values of these characteristics produce different results of dead nodes numbers, which effect network performance. Finally, a brief performance analysis of Low Energy Adaptive Clustering Hierarchy (LEACH) and Modified Low Energy Adaptive Clustering Hierarchy (MODLEACH) is carried out considering metrics of the previous characteristics of wireless sensor network.
