The three steps (EM, NVT and NPT) are to equilibrate the system. How 
much time these steps need depends on the system. But i would assume a 
ouple of nanosecounds are sufficient for most systems. You could look 
into the literature, how long other people equilibrate systems which are 
similar to ours.
If the system is equilibrated, you an start to perform the pulling 
simulation to obtain the individual structure for the later umbrella
