This paper presents an artificial neural network method for long-term prediction of the thermal dynamic parameters of the IBR-2M reactor. Attention is focused mainly on the prediction of the temperature and sodium flow at the entry into the core as well as the thermal power. It is shown that the prediction makes it possible to reduce by a factor of 3 the influence of slow fluctuations of reactivity on the power and thereby reduce the operational requirements for the automatic power stabilization system.
