Abstract

We study the nature of the chromospheric activity of an eclipsing binary KIC 12004834, using Kepler data. We analyse the light curve of the system, the sinusoidal variations at out-of-eclipses and detected flare events. The secondary component's temperature is found to be 4001 +/- 11 K, the mass ratio is 0.743 +/- 0.001, and the orbital inclination is 75 degrees.89 +/- 0 degrees.03. The analysis indicates a stellar spot effect on the variation. Moreover, the OPEA model has been derived over 149 flares. The saturation level called Plateau value, is found to be 2.093 +/- 0.236 s. The flare number per hour (known as flare frequency N-1) is found to be 0.06644 h(-1), while the flare-equivalent duration per hour (known as flare frequency N-2) is found to be 0.59 second/hour. According to these results, KIC 12004834 is a very low-mass close binary system with high level of flare activity.
