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.

A matrix method for deriving the audiosusceptibility and the control to output transfer functions in quasiresonant converters (QRCs) is presented. The method is based on the state-space description of the parent converter and it has the advantage of generality in the sense it can be applied to any topology. Moreover, it can be easily absorbed in MATLAB under Symbolic Toolbox, substantially reducing the calculation effort and time. Using this method the control to output transfer function of the QRC Cuk converter is calculated for the first time. The method is verified compared to other tools and perfect agreement is observed for second order classical converters.
