Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Mechanical engineering
  • Cogeneration
  • Industrial engineering

His primary areas of study are Cogeneration, Process engineering, Environmental engineering, Thermal energy storage and Waste management. His research combines Electric power system and Cogeneration. His research in Process engineering intersects with topics in Heat pump and Operability.

His research investigates the link between Environmental engineering and topics such as Solar air conditioning that cross with problems in Solar desalination, Thermal energy, Photovoltaic thermal hybrid solar collector and Energy recovery. Antonio Piacentino works mostly in the field of Thermal energy storage, limiting it down to topics relating to Robustness and, in certain cases, Thermoeconomics. His Waste management study combines topics in areas such as Prime mover, Primary energy and Chiller.

His most cited work include:

  • A methodology for sizing a trigeneration plant in mediterranean areas (206 citations)
  • A novel solar trigeneration system integrating PVT (photovoltaic/ thermal collectors) and SW (seawater) desalination: Dynamic simulation and economic assessment (128 citations)
  • Exergetic and exergoeconomic analysis of a novel hybrid solar-geothermal polygeneration system producing energy and water (119 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Antonio Piacentino focuses on Process engineering, Cogeneration, Exergy, Waste management and Desalination. His Process engineering study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Reversed electrodialysis, Cooling load, Air conditioning, Chiller and Heat engine. The Cogeneration study combines topics in areas such as Heat pump, Prime mover and Low-temperature thermal desalination.

As a part of the same scientific family, Antonio Piacentino mostly works in the field of Exergy, focusing on Solar desalination and, on occasion, Thermal energy. His Waste management research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Membrane technology, Heat recovery ventilation and Hybrid system.
