What is the differences between gas turbine and a steam turbine?

Gas turbine works on bryton cycle where as steam turbine works Rankine cycle. Construction, operation of a gas turbine are entirely different to steam turbine. Gas turbine has a compressor to compress the combustion air, a combustion chamber to burn the fuel and a turbine section to extract the work for burning fuel. Steam turbine is just has a turbine section to extract the work from steam.

Why is the gas turbine called as the power plant?

A gas turbine is one type of power plant. It produces power by burning gas to turn the turbine.

What is theConstruction difference between stream turbine and gas turbine?

A jet engine is a gas turbine -- natural gas causes it to spin; a steam turbine is of heavier construction, with many vanes in decreasing diameter and pressure from steam passing through it causes it to spin.

Why the temperature and the pressure of gas are decreasing after flowing out from turbine?

The gas (working fluid) having flown through the turbine does some work on the turbine, converting its thermal energy into mechanical work produced by the turbine and coming out as an expanding gas with lower temperature and pressure.

How inefficiencies of compressor and turbine affect back work ratio and efficiency of gas turbine?

Inefficiencies in the compressor of a gas turbine cycle increase the back-work ratio and decrease the thermal efficiency of the gas turbine cycle, since they increase the compressor work.

What is the difference between gas compressor and gas turbine?

a compressor does work on the gas , raising its pressure and temperaturea turbine does the reverse , it expands the gas as it passes through the turbine, extracting energy from the gas to do mechanical work.For a typical jet engine , the flow track on a compressor is of a converging cross section while is it diverging for the turbine, which is as per gas dynamic laws.The Turbine does two things here in the jet engine, one ,it runs the compressor and two, expands the gas to the propelling nozzle which produces thrust by accelerating the gas upto its exit.
