In the SDN network environment, in order to solve the problem of low efficiency of multi-controller fault diagnosis algorithm, this paper firstly constructs a multi-controller smart grid service model and a Bayesian-based fault propagation model in SDN environment. Secondly, multi-controller cooperation high-efficiency device fault diagnosis algorithm for a power communication network in SDN transponder fault environment is proposed, including four sub-processes of algorithm analysis, FPM summary generated by each controller, merging the FPM summary of all controllers, and fault inference using fault set with maximum ability to explain observed symptoms. By comparing the simulation experiment with the existing typical algorithms, it is verified that the proposed algorithm can effectively reduce the time overhead of the fault location algorithm and improve the efficiency of fault location under the premise of ensuring the fault diagnosis performance of the accuracy rate and false alarm rate.
