Wet compression is an effective way of gas turbine power augmentation, but at the same time it causes some new thermodynamic problems. How to evaluate the thermodynamic parameters and how to improve the wet compression process and wet compression gas turbine cycle are key to the actual applications of the technique in industries. From the entropy and exergy views, wet compression processes are analyzed in this paper. By calculating the entropy and exergy variations with the established thermodynamic models of wet compression process, we presented some interesting results that could used to reduce the increase of entropy and the loss of exergy in the wet compression process. On the basis of thermodynamic analysis of wet compression, the entropy and exergy effects at different evaporative rates, different pressure ratios etc. are further investigated in this paper.
