This paper presents evaluation of improved rotor spider design Rotor spider is part of vertical hydro-generator which transfers torque and rotation from shaft to rotor rim and poles. Paper gives complete description of calculation input data and methods. Afterwards case study is presented and end design solution is described. Improved design is compared with designs that are used on similar projects by effectiveness of design ratio which is made up especially for evaluation of this design. In the end, benefits of design improvements are discussed and recommendation for further work are given.
