The use of energygrps has no effect on the physics. You should view
pairwise interactions energies as an analysis method, not something that
you need to do as part of your MD run. Don't base your algorithm choices
on a quantity that is usually meaningless.

I don't know what .mdp setting you're referring to here.

Calculate the COM distance between the groups for each frame. This is
what my tutorial does and what my provided scripts help you to analyze.
Compile a list of the COM distances and determine which frames are
suitable for starting points of each window.
