We quantify and analyze the controller's power in controlled remote state preparation schemes. Our analysis provides a lower bound on the control power required for controlled remote preparation of arbitrary D-dimensional states. We evaluate several existing controlled remote state preparation protocols and show that some proposed non-maximally entangled channels are not suitable for perfect controlled remote preparation of arbitrary quantum states from the con- troller's point of view. We find that for remotely preparing D-dimensional states, the entropy of each controller should be no less than log_2 D bits. Our criteria are not only useful for evaluating controlled remote state preparation schemes but can also be used for other controlled quantum communication schemes.
