Default Determine power along flow path

I would like to get the power along flow path. It is P=0.5x(mass flow rate)x(velocity)^2. Because of non-uniformity of the properties across the flow area, I can't use the properties along the 'streamline' and use it as the representative at each X-section. I would like to use 'massFlowAve' in 'Calculator', but 'Calculator' need 'locator' for calculation, then the result will be gotten at only some planes created. Do anyone have the suggestion? Thank you very much.
