Power Supply Power Supply
English RU

Several power plants in this area exploded last night. We don’t know why yet. Our engineering team is still trying to figure it out. I think it was some kind of a bug. I told them not to release anything only 5 minutes before leaving for the day.


For emergencies, we have a couple of mobile power stations. Help us to figure out which cities blacked out so we can send them there as soon as possible.

Fortunately, we still have the original plan of the electricity grid and already removed the blown up power plants from it. The updated plan now shows the remaining power plants, their supply range as well as their connections to the power grid. This should be enough for you to figure out which cities are not getting power.

You are given the power grid and power-plant's information (plant-number and supply-range). You should find out which cities blacked out. A power plant can supply itself and connected cities with power, but the range is limited.

Input: Two arguments. The first one is the network, represented as a list of connections. Each connection is a list of two nodes that are connected. A city or power plant can be a node. Each city or power plant is a unique string. The second argument is a dict where keys are power plants and values are the power plant's range.

Output: A set of strings. Each string is the name of a blacked out city.


power_supply([['p1', 'c1'], ['c1', 'c2']], {'p1': 1}) == set(['с2'])
power_supply([['c0', 'c1'], ['c1', 'p1'], ['c1', 'c3'], ['p1', 'c4']], {'p1': 1}) == set(['c0', 'c3'])
power_supply([['p1', 'c1'], ['c1', 'c2'], ['c2', 'c3']], {'p1': 3}) == set([])


  • len(set(chain(*networks))) <= 25

CheckiO Extensions

CheckiO Extensions allow you to use local files to solve missions. More info in a blog post.

In order to install CheckiO client you'll need installed Python (version at least 3.8)

Install CheckiO Client first:

pip3 install checkio_client

Configure your tool

checkio --domain=py config --key=

Sync solutions into your local folder

checkio sync

(in beta testing) Launch local server so your browser can use it and sync solution between local file end extension on the fly. (doesn't work for safari)

checkio serv -d

Alternatevly, you can install Chrome extension or FF addon

checkio install-plugin
checkio install-plugin --ff
checkio install-plugin --chromium

Read more here about other functionality that the checkio client provides. Feel free to submit an issue in case of any difficulties.
