Abstract: Mobile Ad Hoc networks have no base station and use multihop routing for transmission of data from a source node to its destination node. To make this multi-hop routing mechanism possible we need a routing protocol. We have adopted load balancing technique that can improve the overall performance for communication in a network. We have presented optimum performance for our novel protocol i.e. Energy Efficient Load Balanced (EFLBAODV) and compared it to the traditionally existing reactive routing protocol Ad Hoc on Demand Distance Vector (AODV) thus using the load balancing technique to improve the node to node communication in our network. Also our routing protocol will be energy efficient as it will minimize the communication time and overheads thus utilizing the energy resources. Some important metrics like route discovery time, route errors, MAC delay, network load, end-to-end delay and throughput have been taken to evaluate the overall improvement in the novel protocol.
