An electrical control and power supply system for at least one helicopter motor/generator, the system including a first DC/AC converter selectively delivering AC electrical power to the at least one motor/generator, depending on respective positions of contactors of a connection matrix actuated from an electronic control circuit, the first DC/AC converter powered with DC by a DC power supply device that includes either a circuit for rectifying an AC voltage delivered via a contactor by a starter/generator of an APU, or a voltage booster DC/DC converter powered from a battery via a contactor. The connection matrix further includes a contactor connecting the first DC/AC converter in parallel with the second DC/AC converter to make it possible, once at least one of the motors/generators has started, to inject additional power from the starter/generator of the APU.
