I have followed your suggestion and did a longer NPT equilibration with smaller dt and ntlist values and It works. The Energy and Temp  reach to stables values as i want. 

 thank you again  for your help

@ Vitaly
of course. I know that. My system is neutral  but with charged particles (AOT and Na+).

I will try your suggestion and equilibrate my system for a longer period

Thanks again

Well ? 400 ps is rather small and you can expect deviations from so short simulations if you start from an non-equilibrated system. I am not sure what the void is but this indicates that your system might not be equilibrated ?

You can try to decrease the time step and nstlist to see if you the drop of temperature is due a flow of energy.
