I have made an energyplus model, When I see the ESO "Zone Mean Air Temperature", the cooling schedule doesn't seems work, so I'm not sure the result is correct or not. please see result below:

What do you mean "the cooling schedule doesn't seem to work"? From the graph you supplied, it's hard to tell if there's anything wrong, if you could zoom in and point an area where you think it's not ok, that'll help... I also have no idea what's the red crosses versus the blue line since there's no legend.

Have you defined any HVAC system in your model? From the temperature graph, it seems that the room is of free flow without running the HVAC system.
