For certain systems, there indeed are convergent perturbation series. In the case of the anharmonic oscillator described by a Hamiltonian,

$$H = \frac12 p^2 + \frac12 m^2x^2 + \frac14 gx^4$$

one may construct a convergent series which is *convergent for any $g>0$* and arbitrary harmonic term, valid in both the weak and strong coupling limits.

Similarly, using a procedure involving splitting the Hamiltonian in a particular way and applying perturbation theory, a system of coupled harmonic oscillators admitted a convergent series.

Furthermore, there exists a generalisation of a convergent perturbation series for a $q$-deformed anharmonic oscillator, which is to say a system based on a $q$-deformed Heisenberg algebra, with a Hamiltonian based on operators with modified commutation relations.

In a more general setting, it has been shown that for a class of hyperbolic differential equations, there exists convergent perturbation series for particular families under certain conditions. (As an aside this is used to show the Einstein field equations in a particular scheme yield a divergent perturbation series as opposed to asymptotic.)
