Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is used in almost all applications in developing environment. This is due to their ability and easy implementation through several applications. The most important criteria in WSN are to minimize the energy consumption and improve the network lifetime. Clustering algorithms are considered as one of the effective way to improve the network lifetime in WSN. Hybrid, Energy-Efficient and Distributed (HEED) clustering approach uses energy-efficient clustering algorithm. This paper proposes an Enhanced Rotational HEED (ER-HEED) protocol using super cluster head for minimizing energy consumption and to improve the network lifetime. The proposed work is carried out in two stages, first stage, super cluster head is introduced. In second stage, the node with maximum threshold is chosen as a cluster head on rotation within in the cluster. The results show that the ER-HEED performs well when compared with HEED and LEACH.
