This paper describes a recommended practice and procedure for the correlation of test cells that are used for the performance testing of turboprop and turboshaft engines. This Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) shall apply to both dynamometer and propeller based testing. Test cell correlation is performed to determine the effect of any given test cell enclosure and equipment on the performance of an engine relative to the baseline performance of that engine. Although no original equipment manufacturer (OEM) documents are actually referenced, the experience and knowledge of several OEMs contributed to the development of this document. Each engine manufacturer has their own practices relating to correlation and they will be used by those OEMS for the purpose of establishing certified test facilities.
To update the references to be aligned with the other correlation papers from this committee and to meet SAE Standards.
ARP4755C has been reaffirmed to comply with the SAE Five-Year Review policy.

EG-1E Gas Turbine Test Facilities and Equipment
The SAE EG-1E, Gas Turbine Engine Test Facilities & Equipment committee addresses all facets of test facility design, operation, maintenance, calibration and measurement, relating to gas turbine engine testing. The group is dedicated to creating, preparing, and maintaining all relevant specifications, standards, and requirements in this field.
* Redlines comparisons are available for those standards listed in the Revision History that contain a radio button. A redline comparison of the current version against a revision is accomplished by selecting the radio button next to the standard and then selecting 'compare'. At this time, Redline versions only exist for some AMS standards. SAE will continue to add redline versioning with ongoing updates to SAE MOBILUS.
