With the development of technology, more and more options are available for insulated cables in power systems. Different cable construction types have different impedance, voltage drop and power losses. In order to efficiently design these cable systems and adequately model them for system analysis, engineers should be able to calculate the parameters of different types of cables. Although the methods of parameters calculation are very mature, few types of software are used to calculate all these parameters for different cables. The objective of this paper is to build a user-friendly software to calculate these parameters with greater flexibility even if the users are not familiar with the methods of estimating the parameters of different types of cables. A program that is used to calculate the parameters of different cross-sections of cables is built by combining the method of estimating these parameters with the graphical user interface (GUI). Using this program, users can input or choose any type of cables, and calculate the parameters they need. In the future, more functions can be added to the program and the code could be switched to python or C# and develop a better GUI (Graphical User Interface).
