Gas turbine is a combustion engine that can convert natural gas or other liquid fuels to mechanical energy. This energy then drives a generator that produces electrical energy. It is electrical energy that moves along power lines to homes and businesses.
To generate electricity, the gas turbine heats a mixture of air and fuel at very high temperatures, causing the turbine blades to spin. The spinning turbine drives a generator that converts the energy into electricity.

The gas turbine can be used in combination with a steam turbine—in a combined-cycle power plant—to create power extremely efficiently.

I.Air-fuel mixture ignites,

* The gas turbine compresses air and mixes it with fuel that is then burned at extremely high temperatures, creating a hot gas.

II.Hot gas spins turbine blades.

* The hot air-and-fuel mixture moves through blades in the turbine, causing them to spin quickly.

III.Spinning blades turn the drive shaft.

* The fast-spinning turbine blades rotate the turbine drive shaft.

IV.Turbine rotation powers the generator.

* The spinning turbine is connected to the rod in a generator that turns a large magnet surrounded by coils of copper wire.

V.Generator magnet causes electrons to move and creates electricity.

* The fast-revolving generator magnet creates a powerful magnetic field that lines up the electrons around the copper coils and causes them to move.
* The movement of these electrons through a wire is electricity.
