Can PAT autosize HVAC components? And can PAT measures be applied to multiple buildings at once? Can custom design-sets be used as measures across numerous buildings of the same type? For example, applying a custom schedule or construction set across 20 buildings.

Yes, Yes, and Yes. Take a look here for an example. The specific project you're interested in is called "Office_Study." That project name is now a bit of a misnomer since I expanded it (with just a couple mouse clicks) to include additional building types. It can be run in manual or algorithm modes.
