Synchronization of two reactively coupled van der Pol oscillators with external force is investigated in this paper. We consider and compare quasi-periodic motion of oscillators with frequency-locked mode. The paper includes maps of Lyapunov’s exponents, twoparametric bifurcation diagrams and phase portraits. Possible types of motion in driven system are discussed.
