A type of turbine in which combusted, pressurized gas is directed against a series of blades connected to a shaft, which forces the shaft to turn to produce mechanical energy.
A turbine powered by a gas, such as the hot gas produced in combustion processes.
Rotating machinery where liquid or gaseous fuel is burned to produce electric power and heat. Hot combustion gases are passed to the turbine and where they expand to drive the generator and are then used to run the compressor. Gas turbines typically consist of an axial-flow air compressor; one or more combustion chambers and a turbine drive section connected to a generator.
