This video lecture describes working of gas turbines in a conceptual way. Here we will go through how gas turbines produce propulsive power in a jet engine aircraft, by executing Brayton cycle.
The operation of a thermal power plant is explained in a logical manner with help of animation in this video. Starting from the very basic question a conceptual overview of Rankine cycle is provided here. Topics such a Generator, Steam turbine, condenser, feed water pump, boiler are illustrated initially. The basic Rankine cycle is modified and use of super hearing, reheating and feed water heating (deaerator) is explained there after.
