Wireless networks are getting popular due to their ease of use. Mobile Ad Hoc network (MANET) has become an exciting and important technology in recent years because of the rapidly increases of wireless devices. Mobile Ad-hoc Networks are distributed systems consisting of mobile nods that are connected by multi-hop wireless links. Such system is self-organized and facilitates communication in the network without any centralized infrastructure. In MANET mobile nodes are battery operated and they are free to move in any direction, so routing strategies may be changed frequently. Thus, Mobile nodes‟ battery and mobility are important parameters in MANET. Clustering in MANET has evolved as an imperative research domain that enhances system performance such as throughput, delay and it increases system capacity in MANET in the presence of mobility and large number of mobile terminals.

In Clustering, mobile nodes in MANET are divides into different virtual groups. Election of cluster head is very much important in clustering. It effects on cluster stability and life-time. Our proposed algorithm considers Energy and Mobility parameters for election of cluster head. By selecting most suitable node as cluster head we can increases efficiency of cluster. We have implemented proposed algorithm in ns-2.33 simulator.
