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.

Various controls for fluid flow and pressure are now required in related industries, and the pulse width modulation (PWM) and dithering techniques have become essential for the proportional control of solenoids. However, there is a fatal drawback when the dither current signals are generated as a by-product of low frequency PWM. That is, the average current and the dither amplitude in low frequency PWM cannot be controlled independently. Therefore, a new method for maintaining constant dither amplitudes is proposed in this paper. Throughout the mathematical analysis, the effect of PWM frequency and duty cycle on the average current and dither amplitude was investigated, and the analysis result was validated by electrical experiments. Based on the mathematical analysis, a new method that properly varies both the duty cycle and the PWM frequency to obtain the desired average current and constant dither amplitude was established and verified. This method requires only the calculations for determining the proper PWM frequency and duty cycle, so it is possible to improve the performance of a proportional solenoid valve without additional devices or cost.
