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.

Improvement of photovoltaic (PV) power plant performance under partial shading conditions aiming to increase electrical energy generation is in the focus of this research. This paper proposes the performance optimization of PV power plant under partial shading conditions by new PV string reconfiguration technique. The Matlab/Simulink model is used to simulate the operation of the PV string under partial shading conditions and with the proposed recombination technique. Simulated operational conditions have experimentally been verified by string characteristics measurement on the existing roof-top PV system at the Faculty of Technical Sciences in Novi Sad. Simulation and experimental results showed a high degree of matching, while the obtained values proved that proposed method leads to output power increase and higher PV system generation in PV string operation under partial shading.
