This package contains different medium models for water:

**ConstantPropertyLiquidWater**

Simple liquid water medium (incompressible, constant data).**IdealSteam**

Steam water medium as ideal gas from Media.IdealGases.SingleGases.H2O**WaterIF97 derived models**

High precision water model according to the IAPWS/IF97 standard (liquid, steam, two phase region). Models with different independent variables are provided as well as models valid only for particular regions. The**WaterIF97_ph**model is valid in all regions and is the recommended one to use.

The WaterIF97 models calculate medium properties
for water in the **liquid**, **gas** and **two phase** regions
according to the IAPWS/IF97 standard, i.e., the accepted industrial standard
and best compromise between accuracy and computation time.
It has been part of the ThermoFluid Modelica library and been extended,
reorganized and documented to become part of the Modelica Standard library.

An important feature that distinguishes this implementation of the IF97 steam property standard is that this implementation has been explicitly designed to work well in dynamic simulations. Computational performance has been of high importance. This means that there often exist several ways to get the same result from different functions if one of the functions is called often but can be optimized for that purpose.

Three variable pairs can be the independent variables of the model:

- Pressure
**p**and specific enthalpy**h**are the most natural choice for general applications. This is the recommended choice for most general purpose applications, in particular for power plants. - Pressure
**p**and temperature**T**are the most natural choice for applications where water is always in the same phase, both for liquid water and steam. - Density
**d**and temperature**T**are explicit variables of the Helmholtz function in the near-critical region and can be the best choice for applications with super-critical or near-critical states.

The following quantities are always computed in Medium.BaseProperties:

Variable |
Unit |
Description |

T | K | temperature |

u | J/kg | specific internal energy |

d | kg/m^3 | density |

p | Pa | pressure |

h | J/kg | specific enthalpy |

In some cases additional medium properties are needed. A component that needs these optional properties has to call one of the following functions:

More details are given in Modelica.Media.UsersGuide.MediumUsage.OptionalProperties. Many additional optional functions are defined to compute properties of saturated media, either liquid (bubble point) or vapour (dew point). The argument to such functions is a SaturationProperties record, which can be set starting from either the saturation pressure or the saturation temperature. With reference to a model defining a pressure p, a temperature T, and a SaturationProperties record sat, the following functions are provided:

Many further properties can be computed. Using the well-known Bridgman's Tables, all first partial derivatives of the standard thermodynamic variables can be computed easily.
