Using adpack to include core-level

Dear adpack-users,

I was trying to modify the Se.inp file to generate Se PAO and VPS that include the 3d core-level in order to analyze core-level shifts in my experiments. I tried to modify the input file and successfully get PAO and VPS files, however the binding energy of the Se 3d level is stuck around 30 eV instead of the ~53 eV found in experiment and all-electron calculation part of adpack. I tried to modify different parts of the inputfile to influence binding energy but it cannot be moved to higher binding energies. Does anybody have some experiences with core-levels and what knobs to tune in order to get correct binding energy?

The input file for As can be a good starting point to generate PAO and VPS files
of Se, since for As the VPS and PAO are generated including 3d electrons.
Please take a look at

Dear Ozaki-sensei,

indeed I was able to use As as a basis and got better binding energies of ~ 50 eV. I am currently testing the response of the core-level to external pressure and structural relaxation and comparing the results with another all-electron DFT code. If the results are promising I will post my input file for other interested users.

best regards,
