This paper present a microcontroller based elevator energy conservation system to reduce the energy consumption of a traction elevator and enhance the performance of the elevator. To control the energy conservation of the elevator, here two controllers have been used namely sensor board controller and motor control board. Sensor board controller monitors the load condition and motor control board control the speed, current and voltage of the motor as well as weight of the motor shaft from the

As microcontroller is very micro in size and integrated in a single chip, this controller can be used efficiently to control the elevator conservation system by minimizing the energy consumption. The designed model demonstrates that by controlling the elevator with this controller energy consumption and travelling time of the elevator are reduced compared with the elevator system which is controlled by conventional controller.
