Taking into account results obtained from models and analyses, we determined the nature and structures of V1003 Her. We analysed the light curves obtained in this study together with the available radial velocity curve. The analysis revealed that the inclination (i) of the system was found to be 45 degrees.82 +/- 2 degrees.71, while the semi-major axis (a) was computed as 2.925 +/- 0.143 R-circle dot. The mass of the primary component was found to be 1.204 +/- 0.004 M-circle dot, while it was obtained as 0.450 +/- 0.006 M-circle dot, for the secondary component. The radius of the primary component was computed as 1.424 +/- 0.001 R-circle dot, while it was computed as 0.904 +/- 0.001 R-circle dot, for the secondary component. The analysis indicates that there are two spotted areas close to each other on the surface of the secondary component. In addition, B-band light and B-V colour curves reveal that there is a radiation excess toward the phase of 0.40. This should be caused due to some heating of the surface by the events like thermal flare, or the structures like plage. Finally, the analysis and model demonstrated that V1003 Her should be a near-contact binary with high level magnetic activity on its surface. (C) 2013 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
