Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper is to investigate which of a specific set of elevator control strategies that is the most time efficient from the passenger’s point of view in a specific office building. The paper first goes through five different strategies and approaches, followed by results from a simulation of some of the strategies and their combinations. From the test results, it can be concluded that one strategy works best for all possible scenarios during a regular working day, both regarding the average waiting time for a passenger as well as the average travel time. The most optimal strategy implemented can be further optimized for more precise results, but it will not change the outcome of the comparison.
