Test extracting will try to extract energy but not actually do it, just report how much it was actually able to extract.

If you directly extract say 100 and block only has 50, you can not know this without testing the extraction first.

AND this block:

transfer {#} energy from (x) (y) (z) to (x) (y) (z) and return amount transfered

PS:amount transfered should be min(amount_extracted,amount_sent)
