Mobile Ad-hoc Networks (MANET) are consisting of nodes that have limited battery power so the energy efficiency is one of the primary metrics of interest. Energy efficient routing is a major issue in MANET. This paper proposed an Energy efficient power aware multipath dynamic source routing protocol by modifying one of the most popular routing protocols that is Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) protocol which is not at all concerned about power consumption. The proposed Dynamic source routing-Power Aware routing DSR-PSR uses the basic concept of traditional DSR and implements energy efficient routing through which it not only enhances the life time of the network but also increases the overall performance of the networks.
