         Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is a network made out of huge number of minimal effort, low power and multifunctional sensor hubs that are sent over an unattended zone either near or inside the objectives to be noticed. These sensor hubs are little in size, however are outfitted with sensors, implanted chip and radio handsets and in this manner have detecting ability, yet additionally information handling and imparting capacities. Every single sensor hubs in the organization intermittently sense the states of the objective, measure the information lastly send the detected information back to a Base Station (BS) or sink either in single bounce or in multichip correspondence. On the off chance that immediate correspondence is utilized, hubs which are distant from the sink need more transmission ability to communicate their detected information to sink hub and consequently they drain their energy quicker when contrasted with hubs closer to the sink. In multi bounce correspondence, energy opening shows up close to the sink hub in light of the fact that the hubs closer to the sink hub will convey hefty traffic when contrasted with different hubs. Consequently, no more information can be conveyed to the sink after an energy opening shows up. Thus, a lot of energy is squandered and the organization lifetime closes rashly. To defeat the energy opening issue, homogeneous group based WSN engineering are utilized. The essential thought is to gather hubs around a Cluster Head (CH) that is dependable inter cluster availability. This paper gives an outline of different grouping procedures utilized in WSN in order to keep up network adaptability, load adjusting, and inertness decrease
