This paper describes a recommended practice and procedure for the correlation of test cells that are used for the performance testing of APU (auxiliary power unit) engines. 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. The baseline performance is generally determined at the OEM designated test facility.
The SAE EG-1E committee is composed of a cross section of representatives from OEMs, commercial users, repair stations and military depots. Based on the inputs from representatives of these various areas of interest, it was concluded that there was a need for a standardized procedure for correlating an APU gas turbine test cell. This paper represents the committee's best effort to satisfy the interest of all parties concerned and arrive at a valid realistic correlation procedure. It is the belief of the committee members that this document meets that objective.

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.
