I'am using waterside-economizer with a electric chiller (Chiller:Electric:EIR), fluid cooler (FluidCooler:TwoSpeed) and build up the application based on example file "WaterSideEconomizer_Integrated.idf". But water-cooled chillers have a minimum ECWT for operating. How is it possible to take into consideration this fact?

The economizer loop should shut off at high outdoor temps. the fluid cooler must be sized to be able to deliver the minimum at design conditions.
