Biography: 
Dr. Reddy did his Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical Engineering from Government University College of Engineering, Hyderabad, India in 1995. After his BE, he worked as a lecturer and Assistant Professor in Electrical ENgineering under JNT University, Hyderabad, India. After his ME & PhD from Indian Institute of Science (respectively in July 2005 and Jan 2008), Dr. Reddy has joined, J-Power Systems Corporation, Hitachi, Japan, a joint venture company of Hitachi Cables Ltd. and Sumitomo Electric Company and served as a Senior R&D Engineer in its Ultra High Voltage (UHV) research lab till 2011. He has contributed to the design of world's first nanocomposite HVDC power cable during this time (250 kV, between Hokkaido and Honshu). Currently he is working as an Associate Professor at Indian Institute of Technology Ropar (IIT Ropar) since 2011 and is Associate Dean of Student Affairs. He is an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation. He is a member of the Bureau of Indian Standards committee on Dielectrics, member of the Board of Studies of several universities in India. Dr. Reddy had participated in academic-industry collaborative research in Japan with several universities of Japan (Toyohashi University; Waseda University; Tokyo City University; Numazu Institute of Technology, etc.). He had also participated in the deliberations of technical standards committee on Space Charge Measurements in dielectric materials. Dr. Reddy has published papers in reputed journals and conferences (IEEE/IET/IEEJ), in the fields of Nano-dielectrics, Power Cables (HVDC/AC), Power Transformers, Bushings; Mechanism of Breakdown, Space Charges and Conduction in dielectric materials. He has guided four PhD students to their defense and currently guiding ten PhD students apart from several masters and bachelor students. He had authored a book on “Reliability and Life Estimation of Power Equipment”, with New Age International Publishers. He is working/worked on several projects with private industry like Reliance, Adani, KEI Industries, APAR Industries, etc. apart from public industries such as CPWD, CPRI etc. He has been the Organizing Chair of (IEEE) CATCON 2017, General Chair of IEEE ICIIS 2018 and 2020, General Co-Chair of IEEE ICIIS 2017, 2019 and TPC Chair of CATCON 2020 and International Advisory Member of ISEIM since 2011, being held in Japan. Dr. Reddy has also contributed to the making of institute by leading in several fronts including technical and non-technical fronts. Starting with faculty-in-charge of guesthouse, faculty in charge of industrial relations, placement cell coordinator, and so on, finally taking up the toughest administrative position "Associate Dean of Student Affairs", with independent charge. His deanship tenure saw growth of students from 600 to 2300, shifting campus, phenomenal increase in student activities, largest student festivals in north India, apart from natural calamities like flood in the campus and Covid pandemic - all requiring huge time and energy, resulting in double rate of ageing personally.

Research Lab:

The main focus of research is on nanodielectrics for power applications. In addition, ageing, life estimation, power equipment modelling design and development research is being carried out.

Latest research on spacecharges in modern ultra resistive dielectrics, external current measurement upto fempto ampere level, DC & AC breakdown tests, measurement of capacitance, loss tangent  and characterization of dielectric materials is being promoted in this laboratory.

Four Ph.D. students already defended his thesis. Currently, ten research students are working for their thesis in this lab and are at different stages of their research program.

Please visit the link given below for details:

Industrial Collaborations (slide show 1 min):

UG (HV) Lab:

High voltage lab is developed quickly by Dr. Reddy for supporting lab component of high voltage engineering (EEL 314, EEL 705) for undergraduate students. Later to the post graduate students of Power Engineering. It is a compulsary lab for PG course, making the PG course rich in practical exposure. A high voltage lab to power engineering is like a hospital to a medical college, which provides a glimpse and exposure of HV equipment such as transformers, machines, capacitors, bushings, power cables etc. It is aimed at training students opting for core power companies like ABB, Schneider etc.

It was started at Room No:136 in transit campus in 2012. Each year about 60 students registered the course making the lab to run three times a week for lab work - was one of the busiest labs of the department. Among the new generation IITs this is believed to be the first high voltage lab in the area of Electrical Engineering. The lab is also supporting/being supported by sponsored projects.

 

 

The equipment is partly sponsored by the institute and the rest purchased from Dr. Reddy's projects.

Vision:

It is Dr. Reddy's dream to establish a world class HV research laboratory to perform high quality research at new campus of IIT Ropar. He is eagerly looking for interested prospective faculty to join him at IIT Ropar in this endeavour. 

Philosophy:

Likes "Karma Yoga" of Geeta (click here). Likes the great philosopher "Krishna". Especially his words "Samatvam Yogamuchyate" (Yoga is same as being equanimous or neutral to all and in all situations). Practicing it while learning from errors on the way.

Nature:

I believe that I am Straight forward, Righteous and Fearless !
