What is a Gas Turbine?

A gas turbine is a type of continuous and internal combustion engine. It was first designed by the American engineer George Brayton in 1870. Gas turbines are types of machines that facilitate energy transfer. Common components in these machines include:

  • A gas compressor located at the inlet
  • A combustion chamber
  • A turbine on the same shaft as the compressor at the outlet.

Gas turbines operate based on a Brayton cycle that uses air. The air at atmospheric conditions is compressed by passing through the compressor, increasing its pressure. Fuel is then injected and ignited in the high-pressure air, adding energy to the air and creating a high-temperature flow. The high-temperature, pressurized air enters a turbine, producing shaft work and simultaneously turning the compressor. The unused energy in the exhaust gas at the turbine outlet can be used to directly produce thrust in a turbojet engine or to turn a second turbine (known as a power turbine) connected to a fan, propeller, or electrical generator. The design of the gas turbine is determined based on its intended use, to achieve the desired energy distribution between thrust and shaft work. Gas turbines are used as the main or auxiliary power unit in facilities requiring power, as well as in land, air, and sea vehicles.
