I do have my oath ceremony scheduled for February 27th,2020 early morning I know that I will surrender my green card and get my naturalization certificate. my problem is next day on 28th i am scheduled to travel to Spain . I will use my Peruvian passport as identification will my naturalization certificate can help to enter to USA
Are you applying for dual citizenship? Are you renouncing your Peruvian citizenship once you take the oath for US citizenship? What is the exact scenario with your citizenship. If I am understanding your question, your current passport will become null and void. If you are not a citizen of Peru, you can not travel on a Peruvian passport.
You can, however, apply for an emergency US passport. Since you are a new citizen, I do not know how long it will take. As a born-citizen, my emergency passport took less than 8 hours. You will have to go to the passport office in person, as soon as they open for the day. That may mean delaying your flight.
will my naturalization certificate can help to enter to USA
Yes if entering via land or sea border and aged 15/18 or under. See https://help.cbp.gov/s/article/Article-3618?language=en_US for more details:

* The Global Entry (GE) card is only an ENTRY document and may not be used to enter Canada, Mexico or Adjacent Island.
Military personnel traveling under orders may present photo ID and orders. Family members must present a passport (with the exception of children 15 and younger arriving by land or sea.)

I'm guessing the certificate of naturalization also helps if you're over 18 and end up in secondary at the land border due to lack of accepted documents (US passport, Enhanced Driver's License, Global Entry, etc.), but that'd be great if someone could confirm.
