HECTOR is a NaI(Tl) segmented total absorption spectrometer at the University of Notre Dame for measurements of proton and alpha capture reactions relevant for p-process nucleosynthesis. In this talk the commissioning of HECTOR using standard gamma-ray sources and known resonances in 27Al(p,g)28Si reaction will be presented. As a proof-of-principle, the cross section measurements of 90Zr(p,g)91Nb will be compared with results from previous experiments.
