Hi

Looking at your energy plot I would guess that the problem is 
related to the numerics of the BLYP functional. You can either
increase the energy cutoff from 280 Ry to a considerable higher
value or use a smoothing procedure of the density.
XC_SMOOTH_RHO NN50
would be my choice.

Betreff: [CP2K:3347] BOMD - Total energy increasing

Dear all,
              I am doing an BOMD run of carboxylic acid in water. After 6ps, i plotted conserved quantity as a function of step no.  which shows total energy is increasing.  Can anybody help
why it is increasing ?
