chtMultiRegionFoam, fixed convection coefficient between fluid and solid

I was wondering if I could use a fixed convection coefficient as a boundary condition.
Here is my simulation :
For now, I use
type compressible::turbulentTemperatureCoupledBaffleMix ed;
value uniform 300;
as it is done in the tutorial chtMultiRegionHeater.
From what I understand, with this boundary condition, the coefficient of convection h is automatically calculated from the nature of the flow.
But is it possible to impose a value ?
I tried to use fixed gradient since Q=h*S*DT (q=h*DT, thus DT=q/h), but it does not seem to work.
If I use,
value uniform 300;
the gradient does not seem to be taken between the solid and the air, but between the two walls of the solid, and since one of the side of the solid is heated, the simulation does not reach convergence.
When I use solid_to_air : fixed value or type compressible::turbulentTemperatureCoupledBaffleMix ed; on both solid_to_air and air_to_solid
my simulation is working.
If it was an exterior wall, I could have use
K solidThermo; // solidThermo or lookup
// q uniform 62500; // Heat flux / [W/m2]
Ta uniform 300.0; // Tambient temperature /[K]
h uniform 100.0; // Heat transfer coeff /[W/Km2]
value uniform 300.0; // Initial temperature / [K]
But with this condition, Ta is fixed and does not use the value of Tair
Thanks in advance,
