Maximization of Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) lifetime cannot be achieved without carefully scheduling the energy utilization. Energy saving represents one of the important factors that should be taken into account during the design of any routing protocol. It also explained that some applications require getting a high degree of network coverage to get a full knowledge about the events occurs in the different parts of the network. This work present proposed a new algorithm which develops Low Energy Adaptive Clustering Hierarchy (LEACH) algorithm to improve the network coverage. That called Reduced Number of Cluster Heads Enhancement (RNCHE) and it aims at reducing the energy consumption by avoiding communication with the sink node from two adjacent cluster heads in the network and providing them in the parts that left without any cluster head after the phase that LEACH algorithm selects some nodes to be responsible for data gathering and transferring.
