Arrangement of elements for Hierarchical Smart Tree

I am using Hierarchical smart tree algorithm to generate schematics for an electric utility by performing a downstream trace from a point (Power transformer). The schematics generates fine but there is no order in the way the elements of the schematics are arranged. If you refer the attachments, in GIS the fuses are ordered as -  A,B,C, D, E, F, G, H , I, J , K , L but while generation of the schematics, there is no order in the way that it is arranged.

I did a further analysis during the generation of the schematics and found that during trace, the trace results are returned in order i.e. A, B, C, D, E.....  but then the algorithm arranges it in some random order.

Is there a way to control this arrangement order for the hierarchical smart tree or does the algorithm determine the "best" placement mechanism and arranges the elements accordingly in some random manner?
