I have two questions, good in fact I have many questions that to ask on PMSystem, but I will begin by these two:
1™) Why when I connect the parking brakes, after a certain time (15 to 20 seconds) these are freed? It only happens when I execute last PMSystem version.
2™) How is connected the external power supply?
A greeting and thanks for your attention.

Well, I can answer you #1.
Brake pressure is needed to keep the parking brake set. So unless you have built up the Brake ACCU with the APU or another function, I don't believe the parking brake will hold.
I could be wrong though. It could also be an issue with the switch or joystick assignment you have set that is causing the unit to release.

extpwravail = extpwrinstructor or (fsPrkBrake and ((fsstartflag1 = 0) and (fsstartflag2 = 0)) and (beacon = 0))
Says that External Power is available if the instructor station [extpwrinstructor] (Another PM software), enables it.
Parking brake is on [fsPrkBrake] AND
Neither engines are starting (or have been startet) [(fsstartflag1 = 0) and (fsstartflag2 = 0)] AND
Anti Collision light is off [(beacon=0)]
