Abstract

This paper investigates energy efficiency issues in modern lifts, based on the VDI 4707 guidelines, in the context of “KLEEMANN-LESS” research project, funded by national resources and the EU. The above analysis is applied to various lift types manufactured by the Greek multinational company ΚLEEMAN HELLAS. The obtained results indicate the relationship between critical technical parameters, such as the elevator driving system type and the standby energy consumption, according to the aforementioned standard. Furthermore, in the current work, new techniques for energy savings are proposed, employing realistic scenarios, which significantly enhance energy efficiency. Experimental work shows that an energy saving of up to 40% can be achieved. The outputs of the current work are not limited to lift models manufactured by KLEEMAN HELLAS, but concern the majority of lift manufacturers as well.
