The mutual coherent interaction of Josephson junctions in a multi-junction superconducting loop (MSL) in the limit of zero-loop inductance is theoretically investigated. For the loop containing 2M junctions there are M coherent states corresponding to different values of effective flux in the loop. The stability analysis using the method of Floquet exponents shows the highest stability for the state with . In this state, the MSL behaves like an oscillating magnetic dipole. The optimum stability is reached for the normalised bias current and the McCumber parameter .
