We propose a new model for passive mode-locking that is a set of ordinary delay differential equations. We assume the ring cavity geometry and a Lorentzian spectral filtering of the pulses, but do not use small gain and loss and weak saturation approximations. By means of a continuation method we study mode-locking solutions and their stability. We found that stable mode-locking can exist even when the non-lasing state between pulses becomes unstable.
