@article{Bhat1985EnergeticsOT, title={Energetics of the Kerr-Newman black hole by the penrose process}, author={M Bhat and Sanjeev V. Dhurandhar and Naresh Dadhich}, journal={Journal of Astrophysics and Astronomy}, year={1985}, volume={6}, pages={85-100} }

We have studied in detail the energetics of Kerr-Newman black hole by the Penrose process using charged particles. It turns out that the presence of electromagnetic field offers very favourable conditions for energy extraction by allowing for a region with enlarged negative energy states much beyondr = 2M, and higher negative values for energy. However, when uncharged particles are involved, the efficiency of the process (defined as the gain in energy/input energy) gets reduced by the presence…
