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.

Voltage stability margin in a power system is closely related with the availability of reactive power in the system. Therefore, adequate modeling of the reactive power sources becomes an important issue in this type of studies. The Minimum Singular Value of the load flow Jacobian matrix has been commonly used as a static voltage stability index. In this paper, such index is used to assess the influence on the static voltage stability limit of modeling the generators reactive power limits by its capability curve. Simulation results on a test system indicate that modeling the reactive power limits of the generating units by the simplified Qmin/Qmax approach, commonly used by most of the load flow programs, yields optimistic values for this voltage stability index.
