In this paper, we present a method to locate a normal zone generation point of a short sample of a superconducting wire. In general, in order to locate the point, the voltages across many voltage taps soldered to the sample are measured. However, attaching many voltage taps makes the location system complicated and in a bad case the taps may be short-circuited. In our proposed method, many taps are not needed and precise location can be realized.
