In this work we study the problem of rope sway dynamics control for elevator systems. We formulate this problem as a bilinear control problem and propose nonlinear controllers based on Lyapunov theory, to stabilize the rope sway dynamics. We study the stability of the proposed controllers, and test their performances on a numerical example.
