This preliminary study investigated data mining-based methods to assess and predict the performance of geothermal heat pump(GHP) system. Data mining is a key process of the knowledge discovery in database (KDD), which includes five steps: 1) Selection; 2) Pre-processing; 3) Transformation; 4) Analysis(data mining); and 5) Interpretation/Evaluation. We used two analysis models, categorical and numerical decision tree models to ascertain the patterns of performance(COP) and electrical consumption of the GHP system. Prior to applying the decision tree models, we statistically analyzed measurement database to determine the effect of sampling intervals on the system performance. Analysis results showed that 10-min sampling data for the performance analysis had highest accuracy of 97.7% over the actual dataset of the GHP system.
