Abstract

This paper aims to address and understand the knowledge application of Weibull distribution to analyze wind energy aspects, which is related to technical, sustainable and economic assessment, along with wind characteristics. It is structured under bibliometric analysis and reveals a panorama of 177 papers from 2007 to 2017 that presents where and how these relationships between wind energy aspects and Weibull distribution occur. This study presents six different analyses to understand these possibilities: papers by year, wordlcoud, papers by author, papers by topic, papers by affiliation, papers by journal and its subjects. Main findings of this research show that the leading areas where these interfaces occur in academic research are energy, engineering and environment science. Another relevant result is that the intersection of wind energy and the Weibull distribution has been figured as a core research topic to individual or a group of researchers around the world. The main contribution of this paper to the academic community is the pioneering on presenting a view on the size and on the main characteristics of this interface through bibliometric analysis.
