Wireless sensor network is not fixed infrastructure which contains either homogenous or heterogeneous sensor node. Each node has own residual energy. So it's very important factor of network to prevent the energy of nodes, so that nodes live more and network establishment in long time without disturbance. LEACH is one of hierarchical routing protocols which are used for securing the energy. For past few years, many algorithms have been developed to improve the hierarchical routing protocol to improve the overall network quality and minimize energy consumption, which includes new generate algorithm based on clustering based genetic algorithm i.e. Low Energy Adaptive Clustering hierarchical -cluster based genetic algorithm (LEACH-GAC) and also research on security in cluster so unauthorized not access so private data is easily transferred and received into cluster. Aim of paper is to compare LEACH-B, LEACH-C, LEACH-GA, LEACH-GAC varying with residual energy, Cluster formation, security.
