Abstract: MANETs is a fast developing research area with a vast spectrum of applications. For better communication we have to make routing easy. Adhoc routing protocols can be divided into flat and cluster based routing. Clustering can be done on taking accounts the key factors like mobility, energy, weight, ID, etc. In clustering a cluster head is selected which have the information of all the nodes of cluster. Unlike flat routing not all of the nodes have to know about each node, if the cluster head communicate with the cluster head of other cluster they get all the details necessary for routing. Here we compare the performance of two algorithms energy efficient cluster based SEEC algorithm and weight based weight based WBA algorithm. Their performance is compared on the basis of four factors these are delay, energy, packet delivery ratio and throughput.
