We propose and study a new model describing passive mode-locking in a semiconductor laser - a set of differential equations with time delay. Analytical analysis of this model is performed under the slow saturable absorber approximation. Bifurcations responsible for the appearance and break-up of mode-locking regime are studied numerically.
