Mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) are getting increasingly common, and typical network loads considered for MANETs are incrementing as applications progress. This, in turn, increases the importance of bandwidth efficiency while maintaining close needs on energy consumption, delay and nervousness. Coordinated channel access protocols have been shown to be befitted for highly loaded MANETs under immutable load distributions. However, these protocols are in general not as befitted for eccentric load distributions as uncoordinated channel access protocols due to the lack of on-demand dynamic channel allocation mechanisms that subsist in framework based coordinated protocols. In this paper, we present a lightweight dynamic channel allocation working and a cooperative load balancing strategy that are applicable to cluster based MANETs to direct this issue. We disclose protocols that utilize these mechanisms to improve performance in terms of output, energy utilization and inter-packet delay variation (IPDV). Through extensive simulations we show that dynamic channel allocation and cooperative load balancing refine the bandwidth efficiency under non-uniform load distributions correlated to protocols that do not use these mechanisms as well as compared to the IEEE 802.15.4 protocol among GTS mechanism and the IEEE 802.11 uncoordinated protocol.
