Dr Z. Tamainot-Telto (CEng, MIMechE, MIoR) is Associate Professor in Refrigeration, Heat Pump and Energy Conservation. He was previously trained in France at University of Nancy I, National Polytechnic Institute of Lorraine (INPL-Nancy) and National Institute of Applied Sciences (INSA-Lyon) where he completed his PhD (1993). His early research work was on the development of cost effective variable cooling load of conventional air conditioning systems in partnership with EDF. Since 1994, he has contributed to modelling, designing, building and testing successful proof of concept prototypes through numerous research grants: EU SOCOOL Project (ENK5-CT-2002-00632) for the 5 kW chiller using waste heat from exhaust of a gas fired co-generator ; EU-TOPMACS Project (TST4-CT-2005-012394) for a 2 kW cooling air conditioning unit for the Fiat Stilo car using waste heat from engine coolant and US Army Project (W911QY-2007-C-0073) for a 2 kW cooling solar driven mobile container (4m3) for food storage in the desert. He has been involved in industrial projects for development of compact Ammonia storage modules for NOx conversion through Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) in automotive and public funded project for development of Smart Hybrid Refrigeration Systems (EPSRC - EP/J000876/1). He has contributed to numerous papers in international journals and Proceedings including 2 patents and 1 book chapter.
