A simple autonomous three-dimensional system is introduced that demonstrates quasiperiodic self-oscillations and has as attractor a two-dimensional torus. The computing illustrations of quasiperiodic dynamics are presented: phase portraits, Fourie spectrums, graphics of Lyapunov exponents. The existing of Arnold tongues on the parametric plane and transition from quasiperiodic dynamics to chaos through destruction of invariant curve in the Poincare section are shown.
