This article deals with automatic power balancing along an optical line. For optimal transmission of an optical signal it is important to achieve certain parameters such as the signal to noise ratio or chromatic dispersion and also the sufficient output power level of in-line amplifiers. Pump diodes in amplifiers suffer from aging of material and therefore the driving current of pump diodes has to be accordingly increased to achieve the same gain as in the moment when the pump diodes were new. The use of a minimal required driving current leads to the longer lifetime of optical pumps. Therefore an automatic power balance is one of the methods used to achieve these goals.
