Modulation of power amplitude is a widespread to determine the radial absorption profile of externally launched power in fusion plasmas. There are many techniques to analyze the plasma response to such a modulation. The break-in-slope (BIS) analysis can draw an estimated power deposition profile for each power step up. In this paper, the BIS analysis is used to monitor the power deposition location of one or two EC power beams simultaneously in a non-stationary plasma being displaced vertically in the TCV tokamak vessel. Except from radial discrepancies, the results have high time resolution and compare well with simulations from the R2D2-C3PO-LUKE ray-tracing and Fokker-Planck code suite.
