This paper evaluates the performance of IEEE 802.15.4 standard Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) in star topology of small scale applications. The performance of the network is analyzed in terms of end to end delay, maximum throughput and number of network devices with respect to the payload. This analysis which is devoted for biomedical applications is performed theoretically and compared with a practical analysis using the network simulator Opnet modeler (version 14.5) in order to validate this theoretical analysis.
Keywords: Electric power distribution substation, electromagnetic field, health effect.
