is just an vane type air compressor.
This is powered by the exhaust gases which are expanding and hence drive the turbine blades which are conected directly to the compessor vanes forcing more air in.
This is exactly the same way that a gas turbine works except that the engine is replaced by a combustion chamber. This type of engine is far more efficent than an internal one but they don't do low revs very well and there may be a bit of noise.
A jet engine Also works in a simular way but with this engine you are after the exhuast gases as these push the plane along this works on Newtons third law of motion.
A jet ski use this as well.
I feel that i may have rambled a bit in this.
