The wireless distributed microsensor networks proﬁt of recent technological advances and it seems essential to understand precisely these systems. Modeling and simulation appear like an essential aspect to predict the Wireless Sensor Network speciﬁc behavior under different conditions. We want to provide a new approach of modeling, simulation and visualization of Wireless Sensor Network using a discrete event approach. Described by Zeigler in the 70 ’s, the Discrete Event system Speciﬁcation is ideal to describe the asynchronous nature of the events occuring in WSN. We try to provide a basis to analyze WSN performance, as routing management, energy cunsumption or relative CPU activity. Our approach use a detailled deﬁnition of node oriented components and it wants to bring some ways to visualize the network at different level of abstraction.
