With new technologies, such as mobile communications, internet of things, and wide applications of social media, organizations generate a huge volume of data, much faster than several years ago. Big data, characterized by high volume, diversity and velocity, increasingly drives decision making and is changing the landscape of business intelligence, from governments to private organizations, from communities to individuals. Big data analytics that discover insights from evidences has a high demand for computing efficiency, knowledge discovery, problem solving, and event prediction. We dedicate a special section of Issue 4/2017 to Big Data. Prospective authors are asked to make the submissions for this section no later than the 31st of May 2017, placing "BigData - " before the paper title in OpenConf.

We have the confirmation Advances in Electrical and Computer Engineering will be included in the Gale database.

Harmonics current emission from personal computers (PCs) is of special interest to power quality researchers, due to their wide spread application and the fact that they are usually concentrated in large groups (clusters). The input current total harmonic distortion (THDI) dependence on number of connected PCs in a cluster (NPC) is affected by network parameters and load side parameters of each cluster's PC simultaneously. As the impact of grid parameters on the THDI=f(NPC) dependence is analyzed in the author's previous papers, special emphasis is given on the impact of the DC side smoothing capacitor (C) in PCs power supply unit. For engineering application it is convenient to present the THDI=f(NPC) function with simple mathematical expressions which include these effects. In the paper authors are proposing an improved mathematical expression to presents impact of load side (DC capacitance) parameters. To achieve this goal, results of the measurements of harmonic emission from a large computer center with 167 clustered PCs and the computer simulation for even larger number of PCs are used.
