A new method is presented which uses the steady flow availability function to analyze the efficiency with which energy can be transmitted in a pipeline. It is suggested that the availability approach can be used to compare the performance of all types of pipeline component such as bends, diffusers, etc., and their effect on the power available at the power turbine.
