Abstract: A Monte Carlo simulation of heavy ion collisions (Au+Au) has been performed at MPD (Multi Purpose Detector) at NICA (Dubna) for a study of the possible critical point in the phase diagram of the hot nuclear matter. The simulation took into account real detector effects with as many details as possible to properly describe the apparatus response. Particle identification (PID) has been tuned to account for modifications in track reconstruction. Some results on hadron identification in the TPC and TOF (Time Of Flight) detectors with realistically simulated response have been also obtained.
