So here I will cover the other major property that is enthalpy & latent heat for steam.
2. Enthalpy of Saturated Steam at Given Temperature
Enthalpy Hv = alphat + gamma
alphat = 0.99615 t + 1.8239 x 10^-6 * t^2 -0.13468 x 10^ (-0.036 t) + 0.13468
gamma = 597.34 - 0.555 t - 0.2389 x 10^alpha
alpha = 5.1463 - 1540 / T
Where t = temperature in °C
T = temperature in K
So if you need to find out the enthalpy at a given P, you first need to calculate saturation temperature based on methods given earlier.
3. Enthalpy of Saturated Water at Given Temperature
Hl = 0.001 t2 + 0.8663 x t
Where Hl = enthalpy of Saturated liquid at t temperature in Kcal/Kg
t = temperaure in °C
4. Latent heat of Vaporization at Given Temperature
Lambda = Hv - Hl
Hv & Hl are calculated above.
5. Saturation temperature from Pressure
This part is also required frequently, so I developed an equation based on data from steam tables.
t = A x y^5 + B x y^4 + C x y^3 + D x y^2 + E x y + F
y = Log10 (Pv)
A = 0.03878244
B = 0.5246778
C = 2.7767678
D = 12.6450237
E = 63.9525883
F = 99.082168
Pv is in Kgf/cm2.
