The storage energy of high frequency reactive component for the switched mode power converter is a new factor to assess the performance. The instability of the switched-mode converter under the peak current control mode is examined for its storage energy. Bifurcation and chaos of the storage energy in the inductor and capacitor are observed based on the stroboscopic map. The boundary of maximum storage energy is given to be an alternative to study the instability of the system in this study. Zero energy is obtained in stable period 1 and the storage energy with the same value and opposite direction is obtained in period 2. The simulation results of bifurcation and chaos of energy are obtained under different parameters and verified by experiment. The boundary of instability of energy stored in the reactive component under various parameters is formulated and a single equation can be used to indicate the factors. These results can provide a new guideline to design a stable system and provide a new control algorithm for power electronic system.
