Abstract
The high price of pollucite ore, its limited availability, and the need to provide stack removal of so2 present formidable obstacles to the use of pure cesium as a seeding material in mhd power generation. Cost estimates indicate that mixed potassium-cesium seeding is preferable to the use of either pure cesium or pure potassium. Cheaper electricity and higher open-cycle mhd operating efficiencies result from the use of mixed seed. Savings of $3,000,000 per year in power costs for a 1,000-mwe open-cycle mhd powerplant are envisioned if the mixed seeding technique is adopted.
