This study focuses on two research topics which are blade design of wind turbine blades and control system simulation of aerostatic bearing The first part is to establish a blade design fitting process to obtain data similar to the performance of the target wind turbine in the condition of absence of the complete data In this process the geometry parameters of the blade similar to the performance of the target wind turbine are obtained Comparing this result with the literature shows that mechanical efficiency is a reasonable value which also verifies the reliability of the blade design fitting program proposed The second part is that we design the aerostatic bearing with a circular flat shape and propose simulation processes We have developed a simple and fast simulation program based on the theory of bearing performance This program provides the design parameters of the bearing set by the user and establishes segmented parameter signals The observation system changes with the trend of signal change to know the physical characteristics of the bearing
