The influence of the electric field dependence of the differential conductivity on superconducting state stability in multifilamentary superconducting composites is studied theoretically. The obtained stability criterion allows one to determine the upper limit of the values of transport current and background electric field in the superconductor. To illustrate the theory, the superconducting state stability is studied in a wire in a range of sufficiently high magnetic fields.
