In a wireless sensor network based on the gradient sinking model, unbalanced energy consumption is an inherent problem and can significantly reduce the network lifetime. In this letter, we propose a subcorona-based scheme to analyze the amount of received data and energy consumption of nodes on gradient sinking model. We then design an algorithm to compute the energy consumption of nodes in different subcoronas. Simulation results indicate the correctness of our proposed algorithm.
