I just have read about a new kind hybrid diesel-steam engine where water has been injected inside an internal combustion engine to improve efficiency. The basic principle behind the process is that water will soak up a large section of heat generated by burning the fuel and will turn into steam that will improve the efficiency of conversion of heat into power. While reading a thought suddenly stuck my mind. If atomised water is injected to steam during compression inside a steam compressor, what can possibly be happen. It can certainly be said that the water will soak up the extra heat generated during the compression and will keep the steam saturated until all the water will be converted into steam. I just want to know how much right I am.
