Covering pseudorapidity interval 2 < |η| < 3, the Cathode Pad Chambers (CPC) are part of the tracking system of the MPD detector. The CPC tracking abilities depend on its geometrical layout which defines the detector occupancy and errors of reconstructed track coordinates. This MC study presents the method for estimating track coordinates along with their experimental errors which are subsequently used in the tracking algorithm in order to determine tracks geometric and kinematic characteristics.
