X-rays impact protoplanetary disks hydrostatic, thermal and chemical structure. The range of efficiency of X-rays is explored using a grid modelling approach: different parameters affects the structure of the disk, this determines different contribution of the X-ray radiation to the chemistry and thermal equilibrium. These contribution is studied in a systematic way focusing the attention on the line emission of different tracers.
