The main goal is to find multiple node-disjoint paths that meet the multi-objective optimization problem in terms of energy consumption minimization and network lifetime improvement. Due to the battery-dependent nodes in mobile ad hoc networks, the performance of the network will degrade. Hence, it is necessary to choose multiple optimal node-disjoint paths between source and destination for data transfer. Additionally, it improves the Quality of Service (QoS) of wireless networks. Multi-objective function is used to select a path such that it gives an optimum result based on the energy consumption, hop, and traffic load. From the simulation results, it is proved that the proposed system is achieving less energy consumption and improved network lifetime compared with existing Dynamic Source Routing (DSR), Hopfield Neural Network-based Disjoint Path set Selection (HNNDPS) and Multipath DSR (MDSR).
