Ranks in NetSim RPL are calculated based on an objective function which takes into account, the link quality, RPL_MAXIMUM_RANK_INCREMENT and RPL_MINIMUM_RANK_INCREMENT parameters.

These calculations are done in the function compute_candidate_rank(NETSIM_ID d, PRPL_NEIGHBOR neighbor), which is present in the Neighbor.c file of the RPL project.

Note that NetSim supports only single sink node (RPL Root) in IOT
