Electrical power generation has been revolutionized by growing demand and use of Renewable Energy (RE) sources such as Solar Photovoltaic (SPV) as the main electricity source in modern times. The main objective of this bibliometric analysis is to understand the scope of the literature available for SPV performance characterization. This detailed reviewed was performed on the documents related to SPV research considering all the subject categories from Scopus and Web of Science (WoS) databases. The patterns for the particular set of keywords were broke down with the recuperated outcomes from Scopus database in the language, publication type, year of publication, distribution conveyance by nations, subject classes, association, authors, financing organizations, and patents filed. The articles on SPV characterization revealed a remarkable improvement which gains importance of review paper in this research area. This research study reports some significant research gaps and shows future perspectives for research in this field.
