Dr. Morehouse and his students have investigated a broad range of thermodynamic heat engine applications, ranging from space-based fuel cell power systems to ground-coupled heat pumps to phase change storage systems. Dr. Morehouse has long been associated with solar energy system design and analysis and is currently involved in a conventional HVAC control project and with evaporative system applications in humid climates.
