[EnergyPlus_Support] How to set up a Coil:Heating:Water object in a CAV system to controls?

Dear all,
I am simulating a constant air volume system with a hot-water heating coil in the air-loop, and I am trying to set up controls for coil to maintain supply air temperature set point calculated to maintain the zone temperature. the objects I am using include "Coil: Heating: Water", "Controller: WaterCoil" and "SetpointManager:SingZone:Heating". Somehow, it doesn't work as I expected, the zone temperature in winter time can't be maintained. Any help and comments are appreciated. Thanks in advance.
