The example shows the consumption on electric vehicles. I want to measure the electric consumption in server when the machine is running and ideal.

What do you mean to set up a let variable?

The suggestion to look at the SimBit called Electric Vehicle was a good one. You can follow a similar approach to measure electric consumption on any object. I suggest you read the help topic on Level states and the description on that SimBit.

There are many ways to do this. In that same SimBit, if you look into the definition of MyVehicle, near the bottom you will find a process named StartChargingBattery. One way is to simply change the properties of that Decide step.
