The Integral Inherently Safe Light-Water Reactor (I2S-LWR) is a novel uranium silicide (U3Si2) fueled pressurized water reactor (PWR) designed to operate at 2850 MWt/900-1000 MWe. The silicide fuel and different assembly design from a traditional PWR mean that the neutronics, in particular the neutron spectrum, in the I2S-LWR are different from a traditional LWR, and the consequences of these changes are not fully understood.
