The Cognitive radio network (CR) is a widespread technology in which the Secondary users are assumed to be of the winning users to acquire the spectrum by reducing the false alarm possibilities and the false detection of the user assumed to be original user in nature is restricted with the usage of Spectrum monitoring agents. The collaborative spectrum sensing (CSS) is an approach that will identify the false intruder in the CR networks, here it is proposed with the Enhanced Q-Learning model with Coalition Game approach (EQLCG) to outline the energy enhancement. Besides an approach on Greedy Bidding is used to allocate the spectrum to the winning secondary user (SU) based on the idle primary user to strengthen the spectrum sensing. The winning secondary user forms a communication establishment with the neighbouring SU to eradicate the miss detection probability based on group level cooperation.  The simulation experiment analyses the cluster level security with energy monitoring that has been performed using the analysis of interference by applying the coalition game theory modelling and the information obscured by the attacker is reduced with the usage of enhanced Q-learning, and the results prove that overhead is substantially monitored. The proposed paper enhances the security in physical layer with energy conservation and maintains the spectrum usage for application purpose. The proposed simulation approach reduces the miss detection and false alarm probabilistic approach while compared with Stackelberg and Bayesian game models.
