    This report gives the details of a 'Closed Circuit13; Centrifugal Compressor Test Rig (CLOCTER), which can be used for the developmental and R amp; D work on Centrifugal Compressors used in small G.T.Engines, Industrial plants, Refrigiration machines and Turbocharqers. The concept involved, the selected configuration and the various compenents of the facility are explained separately. The mdern instrumentation system and the computer control led data- acquisition unit used for the compressor developmental propram and the connected R amp; D work13; are also discussed. Towards the end of the report, a typical test procedure followed for the 'Computer Aided Testinq'of a centrifugal compressor is explained and the compressor performance map obtained using this method is presented.
