WSN counted as most important technologies of the century, it is consist of a collection of nodes called Sensor nodes, these nodes are responsible for monitoring and collecting information about different physical phenomena such as heat, humidity, and vibration, though the sensor node are very small and may can be deployed in light. Sensor nodes are powered by batteries that can operate for only a short period of time, which results in short network lifetime In this paper we upgrade the HCT techniques into HCT Plus(HCTP) which will bring new strategy to improve the sensor network lifetime, and also can help to develop new mechanism on Sensor node replacement, using HCT Plus mechanism can help on detecting a low energy node and dead node also can utilize voronoi diagram to drive WSN management or repairman to replace those dead node with a new fully charged node. Experiment and simulation results show that the above new technique have the good ability of approximation to manage the sensor field and can easily help to detect the location for low energy node, also have high ability and efficiency on network relief and can reduce the amount of energy consumption greatly, so, thus can prolong the lifetime of the whole network to a greater degree.
