The LHAASO (Large High Altitude Air Shower Observatory) project, which is under construction at high altitude of 4400m a.s.l. in Sichuan, China, aims to observe the extensive air showers (EAS) induced by cosmic rays in the atmosphere. LHAASO consists of several large detector arrays including KM2A (1 km2 array), WCDA (Water Cherenkov Detector Array) and WFCTA (Wide Field of view Cherenkov Telescope Array). By employing hybrid detection technique, LHAASO offers an accurate measurement of the cosmic-ray spectrum and composition around the knee region. Furthermore, the primary particle identification can be obtained by using Multivariate Analysis (MVA). In this contribution, we present the WFCTA simulation and discuss the results obtained for energy, arrival direction, and primary particle identification.
