During relative binding FEP, I am getting a very high dE energy for a lambda window. Why is this?

There can be multiple reasons for this, and it depends on the size of the mutation and location in the binding pocket. For example, H→Phe in a solvent-exposed pocket may be easy to do compared to a buried pocket. The default lambda window schedule may not be optimum, and you can customize your lambda schedule either by using the FEP GUI or modifying the config file (.cfg).
