It seems that I can control the bypass using a Constant:Schedule

erv_bypass_onoff = 1 # 0: bypass is off, 1: bypass is on
erv_bypass_onoff_sch = OpenStudio::Model::ScheduleConstant.new(model)
erv_bypass_onoff_sch.setName("ERV_BYPASS_ONOFF_#{thermal_zone.name.to_s}")
erv_bypass_onoff_sch.setValue(erv_bypass_onoff)

erv_controller.setTimeofDayEconomizerFlowControlSchedule(erv_bypass_onoff_sch)
