In electric power system a fair transmission pricing scheme is an important issue. The issue of power tracing helps to evaluate a fair and transparent tariff. A power tracing method would make it possible to charge the generators and consumers on the basis of actual transmission used. It can determine which the most economical line is to supplies the consumer. Power tracing method helps to find which line is having more transmission losses. Power tracing helps and supports efficient operation of power system. Heavily loaded line having the more number of losses, so that loss calculation is the important problem which reduces the power transmission performance. The application of the technique is explained using 5 bus test system.
