Generally, an electrical distribution configuration is a radial system with one-way current in a distribution management system (DMS). All feeders in a DMS have tie-switches to make radial system. Sometimes, DMS should change a tie-switch for operation. In that case, the tie-switch has to be closed first; then a switch is opened as another tie-switch in order to prevent blackout for customers. At the moment when the tie-switch is closed, distribution system is operated in a loop state, not radial. Before the loop operation, DMS operator has to check any expected events for stable distribution system operation; and the most important event is a mis-operation of a protection relay. In addition, DMS operator should check voltage profile violation but a calculation method of section voltages had not been used. Thus, this paper proposes a calculation method of section voltages at a loop operation in a DMS. The proposed calculation algorithm is verified by Matlap Simulink.
