Is there some kind of SW similar to Android phone's power monitor?

I would like to know the amount of power the wifi/various applications have taken.

If your PC laptop has Windows OS installed you can use 'powercfg -energy' command from command prompt (cmd.exe). Read more about non-Windows tools here: PowerTOP for windows?

If you have Linux - use 'powertop'
