Energy consumption and energy modeling are important issues in designing and implementing of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs), which help the designers to optimize the energy consumption in WSN nodes. Good knowledge of the sources of energy consumption in WSNs is the first step to reduce energy consumption. Therefore, an accurate energy model is required for the evaluation of communication protocols. In this paper, an energy model for WSNs is provided considering the physical layer and MAC layer parameters by determining the energy consumed per payload bit transferred without error over AWGN channel. This model has been tested with real data and and NS-2 simulator. Results show good agreement between proposed model, experimental measurements and NS-2 simulator with mean absolute percentage error less than 5.18%. Furthermore, the proposed model is exploited to optimize transmitted power to achieve minimum energy consumption. Finally, a closed-form expression for optimum transmitted power is derived for M-QAM modulation scheme.
