This article presents a computational method for monitoring the energy consumption of technological systems with the assessment of their hidden energy losses caused by erroneous actions of personnel or equipment failures. Herewith, energy losses are calculated as the difference between the actual energy consumed and the minimum energy required to conduct the process in all operating modes. The minimum required energy is determined by the machine learning method based on stationary consumption precedents. Two approaches to the implementation of energy consumption monitoring with the assessment of hidden energy losses are considered – hardware and software. The hardware approach is based on the preliminary definition of normative, or minimum specific energy consumption in each technological mode. The software approach is based on the modeling of stationary areas of energy consumption in the form of precedents and their further analysis in the space of influential technological parameters. The paper notes the advantages and disadvantages of the proposed monitoring method, it is emphasized that the method is able to work with both linear and non-linear functions of energy dependence on the parameters of the technological process. It is noted in the paper that the advantage of the proposed method is the automated construction of the minimum energy function.
