Solar-type stars in eclipsing binaries are proving to be a remarkable resource of knowledge for testing models of stellar evolution, as spectroscopic and photometric studies have opened up a window into their interiors. Until recently, many cases have been worked out with Kepler data. In an ongoing effort to elucidate this research, we examine five detached eclipsing binaries, selected from the Kepler catalogue. There is a well-known stellar parameter discrepancy for low-mass stars, in that the observed radii and masses are often larger and stars overluminous than predicted by theory by several per cent. In our samples, we found five double-lined binaries, with solar-type stars dominating the spectrum. The orbital and light-curve solutions were found for them, and compared with isochrones, in order to estimate absolute physical parameters and evolutionary status of the components. An important aspect of this work is that the calculated stellar radii and masses are consistent with theoretical models within the uncertainties, whereas the estimated temperatures from the disentangled spectra of the components are no different than predicted.
