dear yunfeng,

if you get high potential energy when switching between GPW/psp
and GAPW/all-electron, then most likely your parameters for the
all-electron (or the GPW?) are not correct. there may be small
differences, but if you use the same functional, and have a
well behaved system (water?) then you should get the same potential
surface (i.e. no significant temperature increase).

at least this is what i saw for my calculations of ions in water...
