Today the gas turbine engine is a widely used source of propulsive thrust and mechanical power in both aircraft and industrial applications.

Typically, the gas turbine is an internal combustion rotary engine, and he most widely known example is the jet aircraft engine.  This type of engine burns a lean mixture of fuel with compressed air.  The hot, pressurized combustion gases expand through a series of rotating turbine wheel and blade assemblies, resulting in shaft power output, propulsive thrust, or a combination of the two.

This course introduces the gas turbine engine, including operation, manufacture, and maintenance. It looks at how the technology works and the factors that affect performance.

You will learn to:

 – Describe the basic gas turbine engine cycle

 – Identify basic gas turbine engine parts

 – Compare the advantages and disadvantages of gas turbine engines

 – Describe how energy transformation takes place in a gas turbine engine

 – Explain how specifications are used when choosing a unit

 – Recognize sources of inefficiency and common causes of gas turbine engine failure and describe methods to minimize potential problems
