© 2017 IEEE. Power electronic systems exhibit different types of fast- and slow-scale instabilities which limit the stable operating range of the parameters. It has been shown that the stability of complex power electronic systems can be fruitfully investigated using the Filippov method, where the stability of the system is given by the eigenvalues of the monodromy matrix, which is a combination of the state transition matrices through each subsystem and those across the switching events, called saltation matrix. In this paper we show that the components of the saltation matrix can be used to change the stability status of the system, and propose three specific techniques, which can be used individually or together to extend the range of stability significantly. The performance of these techniques are shown using line and load disturbances.
