EnergyPlus EMS Manager On/Off Supervisory for Plant Component

I'm trying to control heating and cooling coils with the EMS Manager in EnergyPlus. Here is an example of the actuator that I am trying to use in the EMS Manager.

EnergyManagementSystem:Actuator,
    AHU1_HeatingCoil_Enable,
    AHU 1 Coil Heating Water,
    Plant Component Coil:Heating:Water,
    On/Off Supervisory;

The coil still operates when I set this actuator to zero.

SET AHU1_HeatingCoil_Enable = 0,

Is there something that I am missing in how to use this component, or are there issues with controlling coils in the EMS Manager?
