Vibrations of a nonlinear self-excited system driven by parametric excitation are presented in the paper. The considered model with one DOF includes a self-excitation term represented by a nonlinear Rayleigh function and also a periodically varied stiffness coefficient which represents parametric excitation. The influence of the external force or/and time delay, treated as a control signal, is demonstrated. Nonlinear parametric resonance is determined numerically and analytically by the multiple time scale method. The influence of time delay on the resonance zones and the frequency locking phenomenon is analysed.
