Abstract A key goal in wireless sensor network is long node life. Renewable energy sources can potentially lead to perpetual operation, but not without carefull management of the energy both in the indiviual node and in the whole network. Since building a real wireless sensor network and testing it for years is not feasible as a development platform, simulations are used to shorten the test duration. For this purpose a simulator is build which is capable of simulating months in mere hours. An event based design ensures that only changes are processed in the simulator. Comparing directed diffusion with energy aware routing shows potential for perpetual operation, but still has a risk of nodes dying during night. Combined with energy aware scheduling the life of these nodes will at least be prolonged.
