Lift Simulation using PC’s

G C Barney

Wednesday 1st June 1988

A generalised lift simulation and design suite (LSD) was developed at UMIST some 15 years ago. The program suite allows the traffic design of lift systems to be carried out on a main frame digital computer with the results being viewed graphically. Although the LSD suite had been enhanced by the addition of new control algorithms over the years its structure has remained substantially the same. This paper describes a proposal to transfer the kernel of the suite to an IBM-PC or equivalent with improved input and output facilities.
