Thanks for the reply. I need to run a lot of
trajectory to get the average. If I increase the box
size, it will consume more computer power. VMD is good
for the single trajectory, but it is hard for every

My box size is already 6.0 nm. But when I calculate
Columb energy between a specific resiue and waters by
Q1*Q2/r, it still can not converge to the  GROMACS
value from g_energy. I use PME. So I am not sure if it
comes from the periodic image of waters.
