The High-Energy Particle Detector (HEPD) is an instrument devoted to the measurement of cosmic particles from few MeV up to hundreds of MeV. The HEPD will contribute to the China Seismo-Electromagnetic Satellite mission by measuring the precipitation of trapped particles and by studying the solar-terrestrial environment especially during impulsive events like coronal mass ejections and solar energetic particle emissions.
A Monte Carlo software was realized to study the performance of HEPD, such as its particle discrimination capability, the energy threshold for trigger and the maximum energy detectable in full containment.
This contribution reports the main features of the HEPD Monte Carlo simulation and some results of the detector performance based on it. A comparison with beam tests was carried out, showing a good agreement with the simulation.
