Electron Cyclotron Resonance Heating (ECRH) is one of the main auxiliary heating systems for HL-2A tokamak. The ECRH system with total output power 5MW has been equipped on HL-2A which include 6 sets of 0.5MW/1.0s at a frequency of 68GHz and 2 sets of 1MW/3s at a frequency of 140GHz. The power is one of important parameters in ECRH system. In this paper, the method for measuring the power of ECRH system on HL-2A is introduced which include calorimetric techniques and directional coupler. Calorimetric techniques is an existing method, which is used successfully in ECRH commissioning and experiment, and the transmission efficiency of ECRH system is achieved by measuring the absorbed microwave power in the Match Optical Unit (MOU), gyrotron output window and tours window of the EC system use this method. Now base on the theory of electromagnetic coupling through apertures, directional couplers are being designed, which is a new way for us.
