Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) have been widely adopted to monitor various ambient conditions including critical infrastructures. Since power grid is considered as a critical infrastructure, and the smart grid has appeared as a viable technology to introduce more reliability, efficiency, controllability, and safety to the traditional power grid, WSNs have been envisioned as potential tools to monitor the smart grid. The motivation behind smart grid monitoring is to improve its emergency preparedness and resilience. Despite their effectiveness in monitoring critical infrastructures, WSNs also introduce various security vulnerabilities due to their open nature and unreliable wireless links. In this paper, we focus on the, Black-Hole (B-H) attack. To cope with this, we propose a hierarchical trust-based WSN monitoring model for the smart grid equipment in order to detect the B-H attacks. Malicious nodes have been detected by testing the trade-off between trust and dropped packet ratios for each Cluster Head (CH). We select different thresholds for the Packets Dropped Ratio (PDR) in order to test the network behaviour with them. We set four different thresholds (20%, 30%, 40%, and 50%). Threshold of 50% has been shown to reach the system stability in early periods with the least number of re-clustering operations.
