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.

The objective of this research was to develop a model for a prototype measurement station built for recording data relevant for the production of electrical energy by PV modules in order to improve the modelling. The measured data for specific time period (annually), or periods (monthly or otherwise), was processed after measurement results are available, and allow better and more accurate planning of the PV plant. Therefore, data processing time is not significant since it is not used in real-time. Measurement station was designed in a way which allows for the total energy production to be quantified for various modes of operation (fixed, single-axis or dual-axis tracking). In this article energy production in weekly time periods is analyzed since data for short time periods is available and the main goal is to find the most accurate method in PV module characterization. Once the data are obtained, it will be possible to propose improvements of conventional analytical models when measured and modelled results are compared. These improvements will be specific for the location on which prototype measurement station is installed. The proposed improvements will allow upgrades in model estimations without the need for additional measurements by a prototype measurement station.
