The importance of introducing into the practice of industrial enterprises means of diagnosing energy efficiency and supporting decision-making in the management of energy consumption is noted. The actual problem of formation of information base of precedent method of diagnosing energy efficiency of technological systems is considered. Such a base should be created at the pace of the technological process and keep the characteristics of cases of efficient use of energy. It is proposed to allocate precedents of energy consumption by segmenting the flow of derivative mode parameters of equipment operation into stationary sections. Segmentation is based on the sequential calculation of the distances between the elements of a series in the space of mode parameters and comparing them with the threshold values. The technique and algorithm of time series segmentation are given.
