CCL Expression - is this possible?

I need to create a damping in my thermostat, so what i though is with this set os parameters:
if T>25.2 AC is ON
if T<24.8 AC is OFF
if (T<25.2 AND T>24.8)AND(T(current timestep)<T(last timestep)) AC is ON
if (T<25.2 AND T>24.8)AND(T(current timestep)>T(last timestep)) AC is OFF
But i dont know how to do the Bolded part of the equation.
Does anyone knows how to set up the temperature at a specified timestep, like what i want to do in the example?
Thanks in advance

There is no way of accessing historical data in CEL. Put in a feature request for it, it would have to be the most requested thing for CEL. To implement what you describe you really need fortran.

You can do this without fortran, it just needs a bit of CCL adding. First create an Additional Variable equal to T. In your expression instead of asking for T(last timestep) you now need to ask for AV(last timestep). The usual problem with this approach is that the AV value is only lagged to the last coefficient loop (at most), so you're not getting the previous timestep value. You can force the AV to only get updated once per timestep, hence when you ask for it in timestep n it will actually hold the value from timestep n-1. The magic bit of CCL you need is, errr.., something like:
Update Loop = TRANS_LOOP
This is a parameter that you add to the CCL definition of the AV. PLEASE CHECK THE RULES FILE TO MAKE SURE I GOT THE PARAMETER NAME CORRECT (and to see exactly where it goes in the AV definition) - I don't have access to that right now.
