Hi guys, first post on the physics forum! I am slightly confused by the information provided by the following resource, the website is as follows - http://www.learnthermo.com/T1-tutorial/ch09/lesson-B/pg09.php The point that I do not understand is - "For starters, the quality of the turbine effluent drops and this can result in damage to the turbine". How can the quality of the saturated steam drop entering the turbine when we are lowering the pressure at the condenser stage in order to lower the temperature more efficiently before it passes into the compressor pump? Do they mean that the saturated water entering the pump consists of too much steam and so the compressor will get damaged rather than the turbine at the other end of the cycle? Also if this is the case then how can the compressor pump get damaged when we are trying to increase the amount of saturated water entering it by cooling it down as best as possible by lowering the pressure of the condenser below atmospheric pressure? Thank you!!
