The Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) suffers from the greatest stumbling block of limited strength resources of sensor nodes to achieve longevity in the community. The power protection can be carried out only if the communication amongst the nodes or the routing amongst the nodes is an energy efficient. The cluster primarily based routing in heterogeneous WSN brings energy balancing in the network. In this paper, the reactive protocols called Stable Election Protocol (SEP), Residual Energy Efficient Stable Election Protocol (REESEP) based on distances and Secure Electricity Efficient Clustering Protocol (SEECP) are taken into account for their overall performance evaluation. The performance metrics on the basis of protocols are evaluated consist of stability period, network lifetime and network's remaining energy. These protocols are reactive and work according to event detection. Simulation consequences exhibit that protocol SEECP is having greater stability period as in contrast to REESEP and SEP protocols then again network lifetime of REESEP is a good deal greater than the SEECP and SEP protocols. These protocols are notably stable and relevant for time restricted applications.
