The main task of Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) routing protocols is to transfer data between communicating parties successfully and without error. MANET Routing devices are battery operated. Besides good performance, low power consumption is an important issue for Routing Protocol evaluation because battery is the only available source of energy. This paper presents the results of an investigation into the energy consumption performance of two contrasting MANET routing protocols, namely the proactive protocol OLSR and the reactive protocol DYMO. These two routing protocols are simulated and compared with Network Simulator-2 (NS-2) under Manhattan Grid Mobility Model, the model used to imitate the MANET node’s random movement pattern in dense urban area. A mathematical model is used for the energy consumption calculation. The simulation results show the Energy Consumption and Throughput performance differences of the two routing protocols under varying node velocity, data send rate and transmission range.
