Phase change in the Electromagnetic–Fluids analysis

Is it possible for ANSYS to analyze the phase change in the Electromagnetic–Fluids analysis? The material conducts electricity under melting and does not conduct electricity when solidified. The crucial problem is that when the material melts rapidly, the electromagnetic field changes immediately with the change of the solid-liquid interface.

I'm not sure about the Electromagnetic–Fluids but we do have a melting/solidification model in Fluent. I'm not sure how the EBU tools will react to this, so you may need some user coding to make it all work.
