The superior cooling properties of water allow the compressor to operate at a low temperature, providing near isothermal compression.
Controllable constant electric power improves the economic value of generated power and can simplify isothermal compression and expansion based on the required rate of heat transfer.
Isothermal compression removes heat from the gas as it is being compressed in order to keep it from heating, and adds heat to the gas as it is being expanded to keep it from cooling.
