Thanks for your reply, Justin!

I knew that gmx use as the follows for opls aa:
; Improper OPLS dihedrals to keep groups planar.
; (OPLS doesnt use impropers for chiral atoms).
; Since these functions are periodic of the form 1-cos(2*x), they are
; implemented as proper dihedrals [1+cos(2*x+180)] for the moment,
; to keep things compatible.
; The defines are used in ffoplsaa.rtp or directly in your .top file.

; O?-C -X -Y improper torsion. C can be C_2 or C_3 too.
#define improper_O_C_X_Y        180.0     43.93200   2

But if it is possible to choose the function type:   harmonic type  (f.t y.
Where to assign function type number? Thanks!
