The main difference between a diesel engine and a steam turbine is that in the diesel engine the chemical energy of combustion is released inside the cylinder whereas in case of steam turbine the energy developed during combustion of fuel is first transformed into steam outside the turbine and then supplied to the turbine which in turn develops mechanical power in the turbine.
