New BVR light curves and times of minimum light for the short period RS CVn system SV Cam were analysed to derive the physical parameters of the system and the parameters of the third body orbit. The light curves obtained at the TÜBİTAK National Observatory during two nights in 2000 show considerable asymmetry and night-to-night variations. The analysis of the light curves is made using Djurasevic's inverse problem method. The Roche model with spotted areas on the hotter primary component yields a good fit to observations. The extensive series of published photoelectric minima times indicate that the eclipsing pair orbits around the common mass center of the triple system with a period of 41.32 yr.
Key words: stars: binaries: eclipsing / stars: individual: SV Cam
