The onset of stochastic oscillations in gyrotrons is studied by means of the self-consistent theory describing nonstationary processes. Complicated alternating sequences of regions of stationary, automodulation, and chaotic oscillations are found in the plane of the generalized gyrotron variables: cyclotron resonance mismatch and dimensionless current. The results of the investigations are important in connection with attempts to increase the output power of gyrotrons by raising the current.
