This a very broad subject and would be hard to do by E-mail.
The two most important types are:
Traction Elevators: Pulled up by wire ropes (cables) attached to the car frame.
Hydraulic Elevators: Pushed up from below by a hydraulic jack.
For any real details, you should consult a book. One very good one is:
THE VERTICAL TRANSPORTATION HANDBOOK -edited by George R. Strakosch and published by Wiley.
Good Luck with your project!
