Can I add a TKE output when using YSU as bl_pbl_physics parametrization?

I used as bl_pbl_physics de YSU option. Then I realized I need as an output variable the TKE, but seem like I don't have it. Is it because of the bl_pbl_physics parametrization I used? Can I just add de "tke" variable enlisted in the Registry.EM_COMMON, or I need to change the parametrization right away?? (I plan on changing it in the future, as for now, I need to focus on other tasks).

YSU PBL doesn't calculate TKE. Please switch to other PBL schemes such as my, mynn etc. that calculate and output TKE.
