Abstract

Predictions are often criticized for the lack of interpretability, which is often in many real-world applications. High-quality coal is required to meet industrial demands, increase national energy security, and export. This research aims to show that the Decision Tree algorithm can classify coal quality based on volatile matter, fixed carbon, and heating values. The dataset used in this study is synthetic data generated based on the ASTM (America Society for Testing and Materials) rankings. The model's accuracy for predicting coal quality is 96 percent, and the tree has a depth of 5. This study demonstrates how decision tree algorithms produce reasonable predictions.
