Turboshaft/Turboprop Gas Turbine Engine Test Cell Correlation

2016-09-14
CURRENT
ARP4755C
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.

Turbofan and Turbojet Gas Turbine Engine Test Cell Correlation

CURRENT
ARP741C
This paper describes a recommended practice and procedure for the correlation of test cells that are used for the performance testing of turbofan and turbojet 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. When baseline testing is performed in an indoor test cell, the baseline performance data are adjusted to open air conditions. 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.

CURRENT
AIR6364
The paper discusses in general terms the activities required to be undertaken or demonstrated during the establishment of the facility such as: the assessment checks prior to forwarding to the end users site for embodiment into the facility system the establishment of the facility such as trial installations of hardware, functionality checking of lifting transportation and access systems, centerline pull checks, pressure testing of fuel and air start systems, flushing of wet systems and electrical continuity checking. the commissioning of the facility such as instrumentation calibrations, engine starts, engine running, assessment of command and control system, assessment of DAS system, aerodynamic and acoustic surveys. The paper will concentrate on the main engineering engine related aspects of the facility and will not necessarily contain information on the construction validation activities such as HVAC, electrical, facility fire system, waste water etc.

Test Cell Mass Fuel Flow Measurement Using Coriolis Flow Meters

2012-04-04
CURRENT
AIR6202
The scope of this information report applies to the steady state measurement of direct mass fuel flow in gas turbine engine test cells. A measurement accuracy, and hence uncertainty of between ±0.1 to ±0.2% of value is believed to be achievable for liquid flow applications with some meter models/installations. Whilst capable of general transient measurement in 50 to 100 Hz region, this type of fuel meter is not capable of rapid transient measurement (in 100 to 250 Hz region). It is also not currently considered suitable for "in flight" fuel flow measurement.

Test Cell Instrumentation

CURRENT
AIR5026B
This document discusses, in broad general terms, typical present instrumentation practice for post-overhaul gas turbine engine testing. Production engine testing and engine development work are outside the scope of this document as they will typically use many more channels of instrumentation, and in most cases will have requirements for measurements that are never made in post-overhaul testing, such as fan airflow measurements, or strain measurements on compressor blades. The specifications for each parameter to be measured, in terms of measurement range and measurement accuracy, are established by the engine manufacturers. Each test cell instrument system should meet or exceed those requirements. Furthermore, each instrument system should be recalibrated regularly, to ensure that it is still performing correctly.

Test Cell Analytical Thrust Correction

HISTORICAL
AIR5436
This document describes a method to correct engine thrust, measured in an indoor test cell, for the aerodynamic effects caused by the secondary airflow induced in the test cell by the engine operating in an enclosed environment in close proximity to an exhaust duct. While it is not recommended to be used to replace test cell correlation, it does provide a means to verify an existing thrust correlation factor.
