United States was the first country that organizes the power system restructuring in their country. Restructuring should emphasize several factors, especially in terms of economic planning. Pricing method should be done carefully to give justice and fairly to the generation, transmission and distribution. This paper presents about the study on the Transmission Use of System (TUoS) charging methodology. It is discussed about the transmission usage evaluation methods, allocating the charges to the generations and users and proposed transmission pricing methodology. The efficiency operation of the transmission system is the key to the efficiency in these markets. From this study, a suitable usage allocation method is identified. The transmission service charge percentage is allocated between customers and generators. TRANSCO is the important element to transmit the electricity in high voltage power from GENCOs to DISCOs for delivery electricity to the customers. The contribution of the power flow for each line was been used to make the fairly between every elements in the proposed pricing methods. The transmission pricing methods are used in this case study are MW-mile method and postage stamp method. The transmission access pricing must be non discrimination, transparent, economically, efficiency and allow full recovery of costs. Finally, the transmission use of system charging methodology is tested on the 9-bus system and IEEE 14-bus system to evaluate it effectiveness providing a fair transmission charges to the users.
