Has anyone had success modeling PCM recently? I know there is a measure for EnergyPlus, but I haven't heard much positive results from using it or validation.

I would specifically be looking for ways to model it in IESVE, but I'm open to any suggestions about how to quantify its effects.

EnergyPlus has MaterialProperty:PhaseChangeand MaterialProperty:PhaseChangeHysteresis.

I don't think either actually have problems.

These two will also be available in the next OpenStudio SDK release - the one following v3.4.0 - since this PR was merged a few days ago:
