This professional course on Gas Turbine Engineering contains a detailed study on gas turbine that is used for power generation in various applications like aircrafts, automobiles, and marine and also in various industrial applications.
Gas turbines are a kind of internal combustion engine where the combustion takes place inside the engine chamber. This turbine is also called as combustion turbine that can convert chemical energy (gaseous or liquid fuels) into mechanical energy. This mechanical energy is used to drive a generator that generates electrical energy.
