Coaxial cable model with superconducting core and superconducting shield conductor was constructed and tested in DC regime. While the core was already examined in our previous works, in this contribution the detailed study of the superconducting shield conductor in DC conditions is presented. It consists of 16 ReBCO coated tapes with critical current 35 A each connected in parallel. Using shunts with known values placed in series the currents in individual tapes were possible to measure. Distribution of the total cable current into the individual tapes was monitored and its influence on critical current of the cable is discussed.
