Central cluster of Alborz-1 including 5 scintillation detectors in a pentagon configuration has been operated at the Sharif University of Technology campus. Data of 10 weeks operation is used to get the average daily Rate of Cosmic Ray detection. Comparing obtained experimental value of daily rate (2697) with that of simulation (5589) shows 107% discrepancy. Modification of simulation code by considering detectors efficiency gives the daily rate of 3465 and reduces the discrepancy to about 29%. Other parameters affecting daily rate in experiment and simulation are also discussed and relevant suggestions are given.
