[gmx-users] "energygrps" option for separating Bonded interactions

When I follow the method you suggested I am getting an error.
(1) Using trjconv I have created a .trr file containing the coordinates of
the component for which I want to calculate the bonded energy.
(2) Now when I do *tpbconv_mpi -s topol.tpr (old tpr file) -f traj.trr
(containing component of my interest) -o tpxout.tpr *, it is showing an
error message -> "Number of atoms in Topology is not same as in
This means the trr file I am supplying should contain the trajectory of
whole system. If I do that then during *mdrun -s tpsout.tpr -rerun traj.trr*,
it is giving energy for whole system not for that single component. It
would be very nice if you could kindly help me resolving this error.
Thank you very much
