The term isentropic means having constant entropy. In thermodynamics, an isentropic procedure is the one through which the entropy of the functioning fluids remain steady. SQ basically is the sum of energy which the system gets by heating, T stands for the temperature of the system where as dS is the change in entropy.

The equal sign will cleave to reversible process. For a reversible isentropic procedure, there is no transition of heat energy and hence the process is also adiabatic. For a permanent adiabatic development, the entropy will boost.

Thus elimination of heat from the structure is essential to preserve steady entropy for an irreversible method. Hence irreversible isentropic procedure is not adiabatic. For reversible progression then, an isentropic conversion is done by thermally insulating the structure from its environs.
