In this paper, we design a communication framework using wireless paradigm for multiagent-based islanded microgrid operation and control. The vulnerability against radio interference attacks is fatal in the microgrid as an energy infrastructure. Thus, the ability to deal with radio interference attacks and maintain an acceptable level of service degradation in presence of the attacks is needed in the design of the communication framework. To solve the problem, we propose a traffic rerouting scheme in the design infrastructure.
