Energy Minimization

Hello,

I wanted to know if it is possible to perform energy minimizations in
NAMD using a simulated annealing approach? The manual seems to
indicate that NAMD is only able to perform minimization using:

Conjugate gradient approoach or
Velocity quenching scheme

How do you ensure the algorithm isn't trapped in a local minimum?

Thanks
shirley
