Arne Loft - developer of the gas turbine explains how it works. Gas turbines can use many kinds of fuel to reliably generate electricity or run a compressor. Frame 5 Gas Turbine diagram explained. First get it up to speed, air goes into compressor, then to combustion chamber, burned fuel is compressed and turns the shaft. the shaft can be connected to a generator. A control panel regulates fuel levels, which controls heat and speed. The starting motor clutch disconnects after getting the shaft up to speed. Mr. Loft help develop the turbine with a team at GE Schenectady. Bruce O. Buckland lead the team.
