To provide good transportation services for passengers in the modern buildings, a good elevator group control system (EGCS) is inevitably necessary. The viewpoint of designing the EGCS is very important. Passenger-based viewpoint proposed here provides a new way to think about this system. The capacity constraint following the thoughtfulness consideration for the passengers is utilized to make the performance better. Details of elevator dynamics are modeled to meet the requirements. A traffic database is constructed in order to rebuild the system environment containing information of passengers so that it can be made as close to the real environment as possible. The rescheduling ability is achieved by the new mechanism - HCPM refinement, which is a priority maker for hall calls. The advantages of our EGCS are shown through extensive simulation results. We make a comparison between our EGCS and the previous one, which shows that our results are quite satisfactory and superior.
