An experiment to investigate the 1H(d,pp)n breakup reaction using a deuteron beam of 340, 380 and 400 MeV and the WASA detector has been performed at the Cooler Synchrotron COSY-Jülich. The studied energy region, below but close to a pion production threshold, may provide information on various aspects of nuclear interactions, in particular on relativistic effects and their interplay with the three nucleon force (3NF). The almost 4π geometry of the WASA detector gives an unique possibility to study the different aspects of nucleon-nucleon dynamics in the three nucleon system. The main steps of the analysis, including energy calibration, PID and studied of effciency, and their impact on final accuracy of the result, will be discussed.
