Energy-saving is crucial in wireless sensor networks. In this letter, we address the issue of lossless packing aggregation with the aim of reducing energy lost in cluster-model wireless sensor networks. We propose a performance model based on the bin packing problem to study the packing efficiency. It is evaluated in terms of control header size, and validated by simulations.
