Gas Turbine Power Plant - Layout & Schematic Diagram A generating station which employs a gas turbine as the prime mover for the generation of electrical energy is known as a gas turbine power plant. In a gas turbine power plant, air is used as the working fluid air is compressed by the compressor and is led to the combustion chamber where heat is added to the air, thus raising its temperature.
