The paper illustrates the interventions for improving security of a WiFi communication system applied in the automatic management of a Medium Voltage network. The management system fails if the data measured at the secondary substations can't flow regularly. In this paper the security of the transmission as function of the action range of the radio channel, on the data sending time of the IEEE 802.11 protocol, and of the out of use of a WiFi node. Then, a modified IEEE 802.11 protocol is described, for making secure the transmission in presence of a high number of WiFI nodes. Finally, a probabilistic analysis in presented for analyzing the problem from an economical point of view.
