Prototype Design of a Solar Greenhouse Incorporating Clean Energy Manufacturing Concept AbstractThis paper discusses an educational effort that incorporates green energy manufacturing conceptfor the prototype design of a solar greenhouse in a senior design project at Drexel University.The goal of the senior design project was to provide the design of a greenhouse moduleintegrated with renewable energy as an initial stepping stone for the future construction ofmanufacturing plants in industry. The renewable energy integrator component in the projectseeks to explore the technology of renewable and eco-friendly sources of electricity on a largescale. In addition to researching the subject, a prototype of greenhouse has been built for futurestudents to learn green energy manufacturing as part of engineering and technology programs atDrexel. Through this project, students learned how to provide a green design method forevaluating the characteristics of clean energy manufacturing. The students incorporated real-world experience with innovative design with the reduction of energy waste and use ofrenewable energy, as well as incorporating green manufacturing. For the sake of comparisons forgreen energy manufacturing, experiments were conducted, including sensor monitoring andprocess control. A concluding section discusses the student learning experiences from thisproject.
