Focus of this paper is on superconductor stability under disturbances, when the materials are already close to a phase transition. Numerical simulations are applied to multi-filament, BSCCO 2223 and to thin film, coated YBaCuO 123 superconductors. The results shall contribute to improve understanding of the physics behind superconductor stability and quench, and to which extent stability is coupled to decay of residual electron pairs and relaxation under temperature run-away.
