specific heat has a constant value. The gas turbine shaft rotation drives an electric generator and a compressor for the working fluid.pv = RT. Then air enters a gas turbine where an adiabatic expansion occurs. Combustion of a fuel in air is usually used to produce the needed temperatures and pressures in the gas turbine. Many gas turbines also use a heat exchanger called a recouperator to impart turbine exhaust heat into the combustor's air/fuel mixture. At a constant pressure. only air is considered as the working fluid behaving as a perfect gas -. Gas turbines produce high quality heat that can be used to generate steam for combined heat and power and combined-cycle applications. A gas turbine is a heat engine that uses a high temperature. significantly enhancing efficiency. High temperature air exits the combustor at point 3. It should be mentioned that air at point 1 enters the compressor and the cycle is repeated. ‐‐ 2 ‐‐  . combustion takes place (fuel is added to the combustor and the air temperature raises) and/or heat gets added to air. high pressure gas as the working fluid.
