Most of the work done so far on determination of stellar parameters based on global seismology (Dnu and numax) has employed the simplest possible grids of stellar models where age, [Fe/H] and mass define the parameter space. We extend the grid used in BeSPP in two additional dimensions: initial helium abundance and mixing length parameter. This opens up the possibility of determining stellar parameters in a less constrained way compared to was is generally done. Also, such new grid of models allows simple testing of, for example different galactic chemical enrichment laws (DY/DZ), results on mixing length parameter obtained from 3D RHD stellar envelope models. This can be done simply by including appropriate priors in the statistical extraction of stellar parameters. Here, we present initial results of such type of analysis for the sample of Kepler dwarfs and subdwarfs.
