Two classes of integrable nonlinear systems of hyperbolic equations on semi-simple Lie algebras are considered. All these systems are generalizations of the principle chiral model. Each of these systems is related to a pair of compatible Lie brackets. Lax representations for all systems, defined by decompositions of the Lie algebra of Laurant series into a sum of two subalgebras are given. New examples of compatible brackets are presented.
