In this study, we validated the feasibility of an energy weighted algorithm that highlights a characteristic area including the Compton edge as a single peak in a proof-of-principle radiation portal monitor system with a plastic scintillator measuring 50 × 100 × 5 cm3. We measured the energy weighted spectra with steel shielding and the dynamic movements of the 137Cs and 60Co sources. The results showed that the peak locations of each source could be identified under shielded or dynamic motion conditions, each within a maximum difference of 0.08 MeV.
