This study investigates the opportunities for transmission power control (TPC) protocols in resource constrained wireless sensor networks (WSNs). The paper begins by creating a generalised model to describe the relationship between transmission power, communication reliability and energy consumption. Applying this model to the performance of state-of-the art radio hardware, the maximum potential energy savings achievable through the implementation of a TPC protocol are identified. From this, previous assumptions about the limited impact of protocols and mechanisms, such as TPC, which seek to reduce the energy consumed by wireless communication activities through targeting the distance dependent term are disproven. This paper concludes by presenting guidelines on the link conditions which offer the greatest opportunities for a TPC protocol.
