Goodmorning to everyone,
I'm writing here because I'm trying to perform a calculation about the Enthalpy of Vaporization of a system with 434 molecules of an ionic liquid. I've already read all the previous posts in the forum about this subject and it has come clear to me how to perform the calculation, however I'm having problems with my .mdp file when trying to perform the NVT equilibration.
I've read that for such calculation cutoffs must be set = 0 and pbc=none, however with such parameters I'm forced to use cutoff-scheme=group instead of Verlet, so the first problem is that 'group' is not configured for GPU acceleration and I can use just 1 MPI rank (which slows the job time a lot). Is there a way to perform this calculation with Verlet?
The second problem is that if I set rvdw=0, gromacs gives me an error saying that (obviously), vdw-switch must be < rvdw. How can I solve this issue?
I'll post the mdp I'm using here. Thank you in advance.
