This paper presents a novel computer simulation program designed to aid teaching process in course of underground power cables for engineering students. The calculation of power cable ratings uses several different formulas and long analytical processes based on JEC 60287 and IEC 60853 standards. Therefore it is difficult to examine different variations such as power cable properties, installations and operation conditions, during the restrictive lesson time. For these reasons, a program has been developed to use for teaching process of the power cable course. The program allows the users to effectively learn the rating of underground power cables under different operation conditions with illustrative figures. The program details are presented and explained in this paper.
