Abstract—The Mobile Ad-hoc Network (MANET) routing protocol generates a different performance when it is implemented in a different network scenario. It is a challenge to find the suitable characteristic of MANET protocol which conforms to a certain network condition scenario. Generally, many studies have been done to analyze the performance of MANET protocol. However, those studies are related to the scope of topology-based protocol. Based on that scope, the easy way to explore the MANET protocol is to compare between the Proactive protocol and the Reactive protocol. Alternatively, there is a protocol which is a combination of both, namely the Hybrid protocol. Studies which are related to the comparison between the Proactive protocol and the Hybrid protocol, or reviews which are related to the comparison between the Reactive protocol and Hybrid protocol have been widely executed. Nonetheless, there are still little studies related to the MANET protocol which focus on the character of its energy usage. Based on this information, this study is going to analyze about the comparison of energy usage in the MANET network between the Proactive which is performed by OLSR (Optimized Link State Routing Protocol) and the Hybrid which is presented by ZRP (Zone Routing Protocol). This study gives a result that the ZRP total energy consumption is fewer than the OLSR total energy consumption, nevertheless when the destination nodes are located in the sender nodes radius area, the OLSR can maintain its energy use better than the ZRP.
