Broken Bar Fault Detection in IM Operating Under No-Load Condition, RELJIC, D., JERKAN, D., MARCETIC, D., OROS, D.
Issue 4/2016



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 "Big Data - " before the paper title in OpenConf.

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

IoT is a new emerging technology domain which will be used to connect all objects through the Internet for remote sensing and control. IoT uses a combination of WSN (Wireless Sensor Network), M2M (Machine to Machine), robotics, wireless networking, Internet technologies, and Smart Devices. We dedicate a special section of Issue 2/2017 to IoT. Prospective authors are asked to make the submissions for this section no later than the 31st of March 2017, placing "IoT - " before the paper title in OpenConf.

A software tool dedicated for the analysis of power signals containing harmonic and interharmonic components, unbalance, voltage dips and voltage swells is presented. The software tool is a virtual instrument, which uses innovative algorithms based on time and frequency domains analysis to process power signals. In order to detect the temporary disturbances, edge detection is proposed, whereas for the harmonic analysis Gaussian filter banks are implemented. Considering that a signal recovery algorithm is applied, the harmonic analysis can be made even if voltage dips or swells appear. The virtual instrument input data can be recorded or online signals; the last ones being get through a data acquisition board. The virtual instrument was tested using both virtually created and real signals from measurements performed in distribution networks. The paper contains a numeric example made on a synthetic digital signal and an analysis made in real-time.
