Abstract

Nonlinear characteristics of power electronic circuits bring about unusual instabilities. Three major types have been reported. Their characteristics and consequences are examined. Unbounded instability, the most familiar type, is a characteristic of some circuit configurations of many converters. Chattering is a potentially destructive instability mode not predicted by some idealized models. Chaotic instability can be nondestructive.
