Time synchronization, aiming to provide a common timescale among distributed sensor nodes, is a key enabling technology for many applications, such as collaborative condition monitoring and localization detection. Due to the complexity of time synchronization in wireless sensor networks, the Discrete Event Simulator is recommended to adopt resulting from the feature that the behavior of a complex is represented as an order sequence of well-defined event in time. In this paper, the PCO clock is firstly implemented into the open-source software simulator OMNeT++ by using desynchronization mechanism under a realistic scenario, and it can also be simulated at an adjustable and higher resolution. The developed relay node, can either be a Full Function Device or a Reduced Function Device, enables the high scalability for multi-node and multi-hop simulation. In addition, the shared code of this project on the GitHub directly benefits the researchers and engineers in communication.
