A hybrid model of a multiple elevator system is proposed, consisting of a color-timed transition Petri net (CTTPN) model and a set of control rules implemented via the so-called control places in the CTTPN model. The Petri net model is a highly modular structure, whose constituent modules can be classified into four types: call management module, loading/unloading module, basic movement module, and direction reversing module. The whole complete model is a combination of the copies of the above four modules. Since the firing sequences of the CTTPN equate the evolution of the modeled system, they can be regarded as a schedule. A dynamic scheduling with learning ability is proposed to obtain the desirable schedule. A new concept of control places is also introduced in the proposed model so as to make the modeling more precise and to reduce the reachability graph more efficiently. To show the feasibility of the proposed method, an emulator in elevator control kernel and elevator scheduler kernel were constructed for demonstration
