1. A method for operating electrical devices, comprising:
capturing power consumptions of the electrical devices,
assigning captured power consumptions to the electrical devices individually, and
wherein a desired result of operation of at least some of the electrical devices is achieved by virtue of at least a first control instance of the at least a first of the electrical devices, the operation of which contributes to achieve the desired result, and a second control instance of at least a second of the electrical devices, the operation of which likewise contributes to achieve the desired result, being operated in mutually coordinated fashion,
capturing measured values from measured value transmitters individually, wherein the measured value transmitters record results that are achieved by operating the electrical devices,
determining correlations between changes in the individual measured values of the measured value transmitters over time and changes in the power consumptions of the electrical devices individually over time, and
wherein the desired result is selected from a subgroup of results which are recorded by the measured value transmitters and for which a correlation between changes in the measured values from at least one of the measured value transmitters over time and changes in power consumption of at least two of the electrical devices over time reach a first predetermined minimum correlation value.
