Override Node Temperature using EMS

To your knowledge, is it possible to override the temperature at a particular node using an EMS program?

I'm using an EMS to calculate duct losses to plenum zones. Once I calculate the losses, I recalculate the air supply temperature (to take into account the losses to the plenum) and use an OtherEquipment object to add a load to the conditioned zone that represent the difference in the air supply temperature. This works but not in the case of a VAV system with reheat. Ideally I would like to instead adding a load using OtherEquipment override the air supply temperature, which would be more correct.

My EDD file only contains Temperature Setpoint Actuators. Am I missing something?
