The two-sublattice pseudospin-electron model of high temperature superconductors is studied with respect to phase separations. Such a model can be used for the description of dielectric properties of YBaCuO-type crystals along $c$-axis (the pseudospins represent an anharmonic motions of apical oxygen O4). The model is treated within different approximations. It is shown that the model has got phase transitions to the phase with pseudospin ordering as well as phase separation. The effect of separation on the appearance of the ordered state is discussed.
Key words: phase separation, pseudospin, ferroelectric ordering
