It was stated in the paper the mathematical model and its numerical realization for the investigation of wideband chaotic oscillations and of physical processes in the electron beams with virtual cathode at the generators with electron feedback. Also it was briefly described the developed program package for the modeling of non­stationary nonlinear physical processes at the electron generators with virtual cathode and for calculating of output characteristics of devices. It was described the numerical methods and its features used in the program package. Results of some calculations and optimizations of various configurations of the systems with virtual cathode were presented in the paper.
