As hot combustion gas expands through the turbine, it spins the rotating blades. The rotating blades perform a dual function: they drive the compressor to draw more pressurized air into the combustion section, and they spin a generator to produce electricity.
What are the parts of a turbine engine?
The component parts of a turbojet engine are the inlet, the gas turbine engine, consisting of a compressor, a combustion chamber and a turbine, and the exhaust nozzle. Air is drawn into the engine through the inlet and compressed and heated by the compressor.
Is a jet engine a propeller?
Basic Differences Between Propellers and Jets
An airplane’s engine or engines move the airplane by pulling it through the atmosphere, or by displacing air from in front to behind the airplane. The two forms of propulsion– the means to displace air– are propellers, or “props” for short, and jets.
