In this paper, the angular features of the signal and background processes of the associated production of the Higgs boson with W and Z bosons are presented. Signal and background processes are generated using the CompHEP, POWHEG and PYTHIA generators. Monte Carlo data are processed in the ROOT software. We also compared the shape of the distributions of kinematic variables obtained from different generators and found that the shape of these distributions is similar for different generators. Significant deviation of POWHEG distributions from other generators can be explained by the fact that it uses the next-to-leading order of perturbation theory for the cross section, while other generators use the leading order.
