It is expected from the wireless network to run continuously for long duration. For increasing network life there are various energy efficient techniques are available like cluster architectures, Energy as routing metrics, multipath routing ,Relay node placement and sink mobility. Clustering is one of the main techniques to improve the network life. There are various clustering protocol were introduced in past couple of years, like LEACH, LEACH-B,TEEN, APTEEN etc. In this paper we propose a new clustering protocol LEACH-VGM, which is using clustering technique and virtual gird method. Virtual gird method is used to divide the network in clusters. LEACH has used the probability to select cluster head but it does not consider remaining energy of node. Simulation results shows using of virtual gird method improved the network life.
