LAM domain Problems

I have used both the global and the mesoscale template from the UWERN-UM support web page to set up my LAM domain, but the model was unstable and tried to change in the scientific parameters and sections to make it work. What exactly should I do?

The problem mainly caused by the gap between the scale of the orographies between the coarse and the inner domain. This gap induces an inconstancy in the lower level winds over locations where orography has a strong gradient in xy, xx or yy direction.

The possible solution are:
1) define a border away from strong orographic gradient;
2) decrease the time step of the model to solve rapid lower wind numerical instabilities.
