To my understanding, a ripple in terms of power supplies, is a fluctuation in the current of the rails, of the PSU. And if it fluctuates too much, it might prove unstable. With power supplies, you want your rails as stable as possible. So there is always a constant supply of power, to your components. With ripples, that go outside the lines, it might effect the power being supplied.

I hope I got this right...
