I guess by PDD you mean Percent Depth Dose?
Score dose with USRBIN, and normalize the results using the formula

PDD = (D_z / D_max) * 100

where D_z is the dose at distance z, and D_max the dose at the
reference distance (usually zero, or the distance at which dose is maximum).

Other cards of interest for such a calculation are those setting
energy cutoffs for delta ray production: EMFCUT and DELTARAY.
