Dr Kumar Patchigolla

Dr Kumar Patchigolla (KP) is a Reader in Low Carbon Energy Systems. His research mainly focuses on two areas for a variety of high temperature heat sources (fossil, biomass or solar thermal): advanced power generation cycles with reducing energy demand and renewables with energy storage. He has been involved in hydrogen generation, heat capture, heat storage designs, system evaluation, plus application analysis that could offer an economical way to maximise efficiency and minimise waste generationHe has demonstrated a strong track record in the production of high-quality peer reviewed journals (67 papers; h-factor=20-22) rated 4* and higher for chemical/process engineering and thermal engineering.
