This work deals with the development of an open-loop wind turbine emulator to verify the system operation with respect to the wind profile. The emulator consists essentially of a 300 W DC motor powered by DC/DC buck converter which controlled through field-programmable gate array (FPGA) and pulse-width modulation strategy. The motor rotational speed allows to imitate proportionally different wind velocity. A hardware test bench based on the fast prototyping method using MATLAB/Xilinx System
