Hi Mohsen,

have a look at Raccoon:

it should be the tool you are looking for.

If you align your structures so that all the active sites are overlapped and can be 
covered in a single grid box (then, a single GPF template file), you can use the Multiple 
Conformations mode.

To align receptor structures there are many tools you can use, but for 50 files I would go 
for something that can be used from the command line (i.e. LovoAlign )

Please refer to Raccon user manual for further details:

Hope this helps,
