Problem of Active exterior shade schedule only work in summer

Hi! Everyone! I’m new here.
I have a problem when i set exterior shade plate schedule. I hope the shade only work in summer to calculate the energy consumption and with no shade in winter. But the result seems it works both in summer and winter.

Thank you very much. I have solved the problem from your example. The point is how to understand EPTransSchedule. When the value set to 1, it means the shade is transparent.
