Hyperconjugation is the ionteraction of electrons in a sigma bond, it is observed in organic compounds and the interaction of electrons occurs with an adjacent empty (or partially filled) non-bonding p-orbital,antibonding pi orbital or filled pi orbital .This extends the molecular orbital and hence increase the stability of the system.
