I found a sample code:

//Setting the Serie Names in a Legend
IChartSerie serieOne = shape.Series[0];
serieOne.Name = "Jan";
IChartSerie serietwo = shape.Series[1];
serietwo.Name = "Feb";

//setting different serie type
IChartSerie seriethree = shape.Series[2];
seriethree.Name = "March";

But there is a error

'Syncfusion.XlsIO.IChartSerie' does not contain a definition for 'SerieType' C:\shared\chart\CS\Form1.cs 184 13 chart

May I know the reason? Should I update to which version? My version is 'Essential Studio'.
