The groundwater heat pump (GWHP) systems have great potential for heating-cooling system which use annual constant groundwater temperature for heat source. Generally, the performance of GWHP system significantly depends on the geological and hydraulic properties such as hydraulic conductivity, thermal conductivity, soil condition so on. Therefore, in order to use GWHP systems efficiently, it is necessary to analyze the effect of design factors on the system performance. However, there are a few researches on the optimum design method for the open-loop geothermal system. In this research, the design factor in the open-loop geothermal system was analyzed quantitatively for the optimal design method by using numerical simulation. As a result, it was found that the temperature change of heat source depends on the design factor.
