The limited thermomagnetic instabilities in the critical state have been investigated in hard superconductors under an incomplete penetration of the magnetic flux into the sample and under different external cooling conditions. A flat plate is considered in an external magnetic field parallel to the plate surface. Conditions have been found under which it is possible to observe the electric field and temperature oscillations in a sample; their period and number have been evaluated. The theory is compared with the reported experimental data.
