About the Author

Costante Mario Invernizzi is associate lecturer in Machines and Systems for Energy and the Environment at Department of Industrial and Mechanical Engineering of the University of Brescia (Italy).

He is author of several papers published mostly on international journals. The scientific activity up to now is mainly directed to the thermodynamic and technological aspects of non conventional power cycles, heat pumps and refrigerating cycles using organic working fluids, working fluids with strong real-gas effects and liquid metals.

In 1981 he graduated in Nuclear Engineering at the Politecnico of Milan, in 1987 he obtained a PhD in Energetics and from 1986 he works in academia and in the recent past he has worked together with some important companies in the energy sector in various research and scientific advices.
