Condenser water flow rate with EMS: EnergyPlus

My question is related to this issue (https://unmethours.com/question/35540/condenser-loop-pumpvariablespeed-always-running/ ticket: https://github.com/NREL/EnergyPlus/issues/7111) where the condenser pump is not working as expected.

Is there a way to control the condenser water flow rate with an EMS program? I guess it could be done using the "Chiller Condenser Heat Transfer Rate [W]" output as sensor and a "SetpointManager:Scheduled" as actuator. Unfortunately it is not possible since the condenser loop requires a temperature setpoint.

Is there another way?
