NGY = [integer]
Default: NGY = set in accordance with PREC and ENCUT 

Description: NGY sets the number of grid points in the FFT-grid along the second lattice vector.


By default NGY is set in accordance with the requested "precision"-mode (PREC) and the plane wave kinetic energy cutoff ENCUT:

PREC NGY
Normal 3/2×Gcut
Single 3/2×Gcut
Accurate 2×Gcut
Low 3/2×Gcut
Medium 3/2×Gcut
High 2×Gcut

where

with Ecut=ENCUT.

Alternatively NGY may be set to a specific value in the INCAR file.
