In this paper, energy saving dynamic source routing (ESDSR) protocol is introduced to maximize the life-span of a mobile ad hoc network (MANET). Many theoretical studies show that energy consumption in MANET can be significantly reduced using energy-aware routing protocols compared to fixed-power minimum-hop routing protocols. Two approaches are broadly suggested for energy-aware routing protocols - transmission power control approach and load sharing approach. ESDSR integrates the advantages of those two approaches. In ESDSR, the routing decision is based on a load balancing approach. Once a routing decision is made, link by link transmit power adjustment per packet is done based on a transmit power control approach. We modified dynamic source routing (DSR) protocol to make it energy aware by a network simulator (network simulator-2 of University of California). The simulation results show that the proposed ESDSR can save energy up to 40% per packet and it can send 20 % more packets to destinations by spending the same battery power in compare to DSR.
