Just adding an operational-based aside here, that will be obvious to most, but may not be for readers that are novices to reactors. Another important reason for having a source is to help determine the neutron detectors are functioning correctly. If they are reading reading zero all the time, there is more chance there could be a problem with the signal than if they are displaying a positvie signal, which would be expected to show fluctuation & which can be tested by moving the source too in some reactors.
