In this paper the authors introduce a new approach for wireless sensor network power management which is based on Neural Networks. In this new approach an intelligent analysis is used to process the structure of a Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) and produce some information which can be used to improve the performance of WSNs' management application. The authors applied the intelligent method to the previously proposed management approach which uses the concept of Multi-Agent systems for WSNs' management and observed the improvement of the performance. Wireless sensor networks need to be managed in different ways; e.g. power consumption of each sensor, efficient data routing without redundancy, sensing and data sending interval control, etc.
