We analyze the stability boundaries of the convective Ginzburg-Landau equation which describes the phase transitions in moving systems. The stabiity criteria are different for convective velocities which are constant, random or varying periodically with time or coordinate. For the vortices in superconductors subjected to a magnetic field and bias current, the instability will manifest itself in the drastic change in the distribution of order and disorder state along a sample.
