In a Collaboration portal, Whenever a new sub-site is created, either we inherit the permissions from parent or create unique groups. When unique permissions are selected, the site owners gets FULL Control permissions. Instead of the site owners being given FULL control permissions automatically, we want them to be given this custom permissions - POWER Control permissions, that we have already defined.

Please help how to do this.

That was just an initial setting. You can always go to Advance Permissions (Site Actions -> Site Settings) later at any time to change the permissions. You can change the permission to POWER for the group.
Please note that if you do nto set any individual or group to have full control, you may end up nobody can modify the permissions or configure the site, except site collection administrators.

We dont want to change the permissions manually. We want it to be be set automatically to POWER whenever the new site is created.

by default the group is assigned Full Control. I do not know why you do not want to change the permissions manually. Is your site programmatically created? If so, you need to add codes to change the Full Control to customized POWER. Use SharePoint role definition and role assignment in your codes.

My point was that since you did not want to change it manually I thought your site was created programatically. Another point was that it was the default way of assigning Full Control to site owners - which makes sense, doesn't it? - so if you want to assign another permission to the group, you can easily do it by just a few clicks.
