Small jet and turboprop engines usually use centrifugal compressors. Compressor stable operation is very important for jet engine work and its use. This paper deals with centrifugal compressor stability margin assessment. The appropriate parameter is selected to inform us about working regime in which jet engine (compressor) works in terms of its stable operation.
