Calculating the background photoelectric effect, Compton scattering and Bremsstrahlung were taken into account. Luminescence background from particles produced in solar flares was simulated using Geant4. Additionally, theoretical spectra was modeled in order to simulate full SOLPEX detector response for M5 and X1 solar flare classes.
