Due to volatile and rising energy prices, smart microgrids appear to be increasingly popular. Instead of one centrally located power plant, the microgrids will rely on solar panels and wind turbines on every house sharing renewable energy among houses. How to efficiently and optimally share energy is a challenging problem. In order to efficiently share renewable energy, routing protocols in the data network are needed, which introduces another design challenge that is how to feasibly detect and defend the major attacks against routing protocols for smart microgrids.
