Symptoms

Viewer: Parallel state disappears when combined with multistate

In the NMS viewer, introduce a single phase parallel on a three phase radial feeder. When operating, the dialog box informs the user that a parallel is being introduced.
The resulting conductor state (as observed through the Trace tool) lists BIDIRECTIONAL and MULTISTATE.
Bidirectional state is reserved for a loop configuration, which I did not introduce. Conductor state should be PARALLEL and MULTISTATE.
This is reproducible in an OPAL model as well, on both Linux and AIX.

The viewer should be coloring the conductors based on per-phase PARALLEL or MESH as well as MULTISTATE


The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Close S2985 on phase A only.
2. Bring up the Trace dialog and expand it.
3. Select one of the conductors on either side of the tie switch.
They should list the valid statuses as Parallel, Bi-Directional, and Multistate

4. Select a conductor that's not in the directly bi-directional path, like OH3P-2273799-472217-2273851-472513.
This is the ABC conductor next to F1119
It should list the valid statuses as Parallel and Multistate
