  You are correct; not all of the optimization methods available in 
GenOpt are implemented in TRNOpt. TRNOpt is designed to work with a 
particular version of GenOpt. TRNOPT v17 is designed to work with the 
GenOpt version 3.0.3 and it may be that the optimization algorithm that 
you want to use was not implemented in that particular version of 
GenOpt. If that is the case then you'll unfortunately not be able to use 
the TRNOpt interface. You can still link up Trnsys with GenOpt but 
you'll need to do so without the interface (ie following the directions 
in GenOpt's documentation).

kind regards,
