At first glance this seems like a crazy idea, burning water. However it does work in that you spray liquid water into the combustion chamber, then the heat of the fuel combusting converts the liquid water into steam causing expansion and thus power. You get the extra power at the expense of exhaust gas temperature, not a bad thing. This technique was used extensively in WWII airplanes as emergency power.
